Series: God Is - I Am

Exodus 3:11-14

Last week, we began a brand new sermon series we are calling GOD IS…. I AM…. We know that one of the names of God is ''I AM'' which is taken from the book of Exodus when God called Moses to deliver the Israelites out of Egyptian bondage.

Exodus 3:11 But Moses said to God, ''Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?'' 12 So He said, ''I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.'' 13 Then Moses said to God, ''Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they say to me, 'What is His name?' what shall I say to them?'' 14 And God said to Moses, ''I AM WHO I AM.''
