3:16 Thursdays is a series of blog posts focusing on the 3:16 passages throughout the Bible that have really stuck out to me in my studies from Genesis to Revelation.
Go, assemble the elders of Israel and say to them, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—appeared to me and said: I have watched over you and have seen what has been done to you in Egypt.
This is God speaking to Moses in the burning bush. He's giving Moses the big news of rescuing the children of Israel from Pharaoh. Moses is clearly considered about how the people will receive this news and is feeling insecure. God wants His people to know that He sees their troubles and that He cares. We still worship the same God who cares in our troubles.
