    Moses Sunday School Lesson
    Burning Bush

    The bible story of Moses would take many hours to tell from start to finish, so instead of beginning when Moses was a baby and put into the basket (that's another Sunday school lesson), we're going to focus on the type of man he was, the burning bush, and how God has a plan for us just like he did Moses.


    Who was Moses? Moses was a man who began his life running from death. You see, when Moses was born, it was a time when all the baby boys in the land were not supposed to be left alive. It was a horrible time, yet God saved Moses through the Pharaoh's daughter who raised him as her own.

    As years passed, Moses became a man who didn't believe he could do the things God needed him to do.

    Ask the kids, "Do you think you could do the things God needs you to do?"

    Ask other questions to prompt the children to think like:

    • Do you think you could move away from your family if God ask you to?
    • Do you think you could live in a different country if God asked?
    • Could you leave everything behind?
    • Would you become a preacher who preaches on TV or pastor a small church?
    • Could you give all your money away to live in a tent?
    • Could you study your bible to teach Sunday school?
    • What about just telling your best friend about God?
    • Could you write a book of bible stories?
    Moses was a man who didn't think he was capable of doing anything. He watched his father-in-law's flock. He didn't have a lot of money. He was not famous. He didn't talk well. What could he do for God?

    The Burning Bush

    One day, when Moses was watching the flock, he came to a mountain. Suddenly, the angel of the Lord (Jesus before he came to earth) appeared to Moses in a burning bush. Moses looked and saw the burning bush, but the bush was not burning away.

    Ask the kids, "Have you ever been camping?"

    When you put wood on the fire, did it burn away or did the wood stay the same? Of course, the wood burned away. That is why it was a miraculous event that happened when the bush was blazing flames, but not turning to ashes.

    As the angel of the Lord spoke to Moses, he told Moses to take off his shoes because he was on holy ground. Moses realizing who was talking to him out of the bush was afraid to look at it. Long ago, people believed that if you saw God face-to-face, you would surely die.

    But, the Lord had a job for Moses.

    Moses was to lead his people, the Israelites, out of slavery. The were being treated terribly and God needed Moses to go to the Pharaoh, and tell him to let his people go.

    The trouble was that Moses didn't believe he could do it. He didn't think he was the right man for the job. He said, "I do not speak very well. I talk slowly." Even though God told Moses he would be with him during this time, Moses still didn't think he was worthy of doing this job for God.

    God was upset with Moses and told him to take his brother, Aaron, with him when he went to Pharaoh.

    Moses did go and he did lead God's people out of slavery.

    What Can We Learn?

    What can we learn from this Sunday school lesson about Moses? We can learn that no matter how well we speak, how well we read, whether we are super smart, whether we are rich, where we live, what kind of clothes we have, if we are scared, or if we don't believe in ourselves, that when God goes with us we can do anything. God has a plan for each of us.

    God doesn't ask us to do anything we can't do.

    He can use each one of us. We only need to listen for him and to do what he needs us to do. We may not hear the words of God coming out of a burning bush the way Moses did, but we can hear the voice inside us that helps guide us to do what we are supposed to do.
