SUMMER ROAD TRIP LESSON SERIES

Drive-Thru

Scripture: Exodus 12:1-14; Passover

There's usually nothing very extraordinary about your average drive-thru meal. You're usually just

there to get a simple meal and get back on the road. The Israelites journey out of slavery began

with a very simple, but special meal to show us that God has special things in store for us.


Grand Canyon

Scripture: Exodus 14:5-29; The Red Sea

When you stand on the edge of the canyon, you marvel at the thought of what it would take to get

to the other side. When the Israelites reached the Red Sea, they saw no way across, but God showed

them His amazing power to save.


Campground

Scripture: Exodus 16:1-23; Manna and Quail. 

Stopping at a campground may not be your ideal vacation destination, but even in the simple settings

of a campground we can still find things to be thankful for and see how God takes care of us: a tent to

keep us dry, food to eat around the campfire, beautiful scenery. God showed the Israelites over and

over again that He is faithful to take care of us.


Rest Stop

Scripture: Exodus 17:1-7; Water from the Rock

There are rest stops along the highway for us to stop and take a little break. When the Israelites were

tired and out of water, God created a rest stop for them in the desert reminding us that God is always

with us and He knows what we need.


Grandparent's House

Scripture: Exodus 18; Jethro Visits Moses

Sometimes we take road trips to spend time with family we don't see very often. In the desert, Moses' 

father-in-law visited and gave him some goo advise, showing us that God brings wise people into our

lives to listen to.


The Beach

Scripture: Exodus 20:1-17, 31:18; The Ten Commandments

The beach is one of the most popular and exciting vacation spots. However, to make sure everyone has fun

and stays safe there are a lot of rules at the beach. In the Bible, God carved His rules for living into stone to

give Moses and the people the Ten Commandments. God's law is holy and good.


Tourist Traps

Scripture: Exodus 32:1-26; The Golden Calf

Usually tourist traps don't live up to the hype and they just distract us from getting to our vacation destination.

When the Israelites lost their faith in God, they built a huge golden calf to worship, forgetting that only God is

the one true God.


The Promised Land

Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:1-8, 32:48-52; Moses Sees the Promised Land

For some road trippers, amusement parks are the Promised Land. When Moses was very old, God showed him

from a distance the Promised Land that God had prepared for the people. God has prepared good things for

us as well.
