Have a group member read Exodus 3 aloud. Then have another group member read Acts 7:30-34. How does the account in Acts add to your understanding of the account in Exodus?


  • What purpose does this “scene” in the life of Moses serve? How does it look back to what has already occurred and prepare us for what is to come?

  • How should Moses have responded to God’s statements in Exodus 3:10? What does his actual response reveal?

  • Summarize God’s words to Moses in chapter 3 in one sentence. What is the main point He expresses to Moses?


  • Have you ever thought or said, “If God would just tell me explicitly what to do, I would do it”? How does the story of Moses and the burning bush challenge that statement? Why do we still hesitate to obey, even when the will of God is clear?

  • God spoke to Moses from a burning bush. Today, He speaks to us from His Word. What clear command from Scripture are you slow to obey? What immediate obedience do you need to practice this week? How does God’s response to Moses urge you to walk forward in obedience?


What attribute of God did you see in this week’s passage that particularly struck you? How should it change the way you pray, think, speak or act this week?
