My answers to study questions for BSF Life of Moses Lesson 3 Day 2 Exodus 3:1-10
If you are a member of BSF, you can find the weekly lesson questions here.
 3.  a.  Reasons God showed Moses a burning bush that was not consumed—
  • So Moses would be fascinated and curious
  • So Moses would come closer
  • So Moses would see God’s ability to produce signs and wonders

b.  In this instance, I don’t think the fire symbolized something as much as it was something—a manifestation of the presence of God the Father and the Holy Spirit. The Angel of the Lord appeared to Moses. The entire godhead was represented.

c.  God told Moses to remove his sandals because the place he was standing was holy ground. Exodus 3:5 

I’m wondering why God said it was holy ground. Was it because God appeared there? Was it holy ground from then on, or just right then?

d.  The Son of God

4.  a.  God’s message to Moses—Go. I am sending you to Pharaoh so that you may lead My people, the Israelites, out of Egypt. Exodus 3:10 HCSB

b.  God’s relationship with His people—

  • He desires our worship and recognition of His holiness.
  • He remembers us.
  • He always has a plan.
  • He watches us and sees us.
  • He cares for us and loves us.
  • He shows mercy.
  • He shows patience.
  • He knows what it takes to prepare us for our calling.
  • He will make a way.
  • He wants to set us free.
  • He is faithful.
