“Now these are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob; they came each one with his household” (Exodus 1:1).

Life inevitably brings us to a place called Egypt, where circumstances seek to enslave us and make us think our situation is inescapable. Exodus is a term made up of two Greek words meaning “the way out,” “the escape,” “the exit.” And while we may think our “Egypt” is a prison from which there is no escape, the message of Exodus is that God’s grace is a providential assurance that there is no situation from which God cannot rescue us.
