Evening Service [Exodus Chapter 16]: The Israelites have been rescued from certain death as slaves by the Lord. They soon forget his power, goodness and promises. They are hungry in the wilderness so they grumble against the Lord. He provides bread from heaven [manna] and quail as food. Jesus Christ uses this to explain his role as Messiah. He is the only one who can deal with our deep down spiritual hunger and restlessness.

Evening Service: In Exodus chapter 13-14 it seems as if God has sent the Israelites the wrong. They are escaping from Egypt and going in the direction that God leads them brings them into a trap. The Red Sea is in front of them and the Egyptian army behind them. They face slaughter and death. Yet God is true to his promises and they are delivered. God never deserts his people & he never forgets his promises. On the First Good Friday it looked as if Jesus has taken the wrong option as he hangs on the cross but God is in Christ reconciling the world to himself.
