Are We Not All Slaves?
This Lenten season we will spend the next few weeks working our way through the early chapters of the book of Exodus. During this season of humble repentance, the Church has historically reflected on and repented of its slavery to sin and “the old self” of our sinful nature. This week we will look at Exodus 1 and the slavery the Israelites suffered under the hand of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. We’ll reflect on the things–habits, practices, and rhythms of life–that we become slaves to as well, and how we find true freedom in our liberator and Savior, Jesus Christ.
