Preaching the need for redemption

Ths Sunday I will be preaching on Exodus 14, the exodus from Egypt and the crossing of the Sea of Reeds. It teaches us among other things that God is redeemer of his people. What I am struggling with, and always have, is how to convince people they need redeeming.

How do you do this? Not of redemption in Christ, but that they need redeeming in the first place.

showing that people are enslaved.
that is they are not truly free.

How would you convince someone who thinks they have it pretty good that they are slaves. Who is their Pharaoh, where is their hardship?

And where am I going to find slavery in Exodus 14????
