Can you find the cross? It is there to remind us God gave a way to cross from death to life.
But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. — Exodus 14:16 (NKJV)
Abraham’s family became a great nation, Israel. Many years later Israel moved to Egypt because there was nothing to eat in their land. Can you imagine living in a land where there is no food at all? In Egypt the children and grandchildren of Abraham grew even greater. After many years, the Egyptians were afraid of them and made them slaves. When they cried out to God for help, He sent Moses to lead them to freedom. The Egyptians would not let them go until God sent plagues on their nation. Then, even after Israel had left, the Egyptians decided to send their army to bring them back. Israel was trapped between Egypt’s army and the Red Sea until Moses raised his arm over the water and called on God to save them. God answered, “Stand still and watch the power of the Lord.” Then He did a miracle and caused the waters to part so His people could escape across dry land to the wilderness.
