- Exodus 3:1-15 Faith Without Excuse (Wagner)

- Exodus 3:1-15 Shoeless (Butler)

- Exodus 3:1-15 The Bright Field (Hoffacker)
Life is “the turning aside like Moses to the miracle of the lit bush,” to the miracle of the moment in which eternity awaits you. Through that moment there comes to you all the purpose and strength you need. For it is in the present moment that eternity meets us sweet as the kiss of God.
- Exodus 3:1-15 Just Picking Raspberries (Donovan)
Elizabeth Barrett Browning had Moses in mind when she wrote: “Earth’s crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; And only he who sees takes off his shoes––The rest sit ’round and pluck raspberries.”

- Exodus 3:13-15 Speaking of God (Entrekin)
When Moses asks God for God’s name, he is asking for a connection. Who do I say sent me, God? I could use a little authority to back me up. So God gives a name. And quite a name it is. God says, I am who I am.
- Exodus 3:1-15; 4:1-7 I Will Send You to Pharaoh! (Donovan)
God appears to Moses in a burning bush, and calls him to confront Pharaoh and to lead God's people out of Egypt. Startled, Moses responded, "Who am I that I should do this?" God said, "I will be with you."
- John 3:1-17 & Exodus 3:1-6 The Cure for Our Pride (Hoffacker)
Since the day we were born, we have encountered societies scarred by selfishness, self-condemnation, and sin. One of its worst results is our assumption that a social order is inevitably like this. We live in a moral and spiritual madhouse, and assume it to be normal.
