This Sunday we’ll take a look at Exodus 19:9-20:26 and see how Jesus frees us from the Law and leads us from Sinai to Zion, the spiritual mountain of joy and salvation. We also want to wish all our moms a “happy Mother’s Day!” We hope to see you there!

Sermon Notes
The Two Mountains ~ Exodus 19:9-20:26

The sermon in one sentence: Israel in dread met with God at Sinai and received the Law; because of Jesus, we in joy meet with God at Zion and receive true freedom.

  • Israel’s experience with Sinai…
    • They faced repeated warnings and cautions to keep their distance and worship carefully (19:9-25, 20:22-26)
    • They faced darkness and noise that produced fear and caused them to draw back (19:16-20, 20:18-21)
    • They received the Law through ten initial commands
  • Our experience with Sinai…
    • Jesus leads us away from Sinai to Zion, a much better mountain (Hebrews 12:18-24
    • Jesus frees us from the burden of the Law (Galatians 4:21-5:1, 5:13)
    • Jesus redefines the Law positively in the terms of love (Matthew 22:36-40)
    • Jesus gives new purpose to the Law
  • Our response:
    • Realize your need for Jesus and seek the eternal joys of Zion through him
    • Having turned to Jesus, walk in the freedom to love and obey that God has given
