Rescue

Our church's mission statement is "Rescue, Grow and Serve." This morning service was all about rescue. Our Pastor spoke about why he chose rescue instead of evangalism and what it meant to him. The biggest part of the sermon that I took home with me is reaching out to at least two people who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ and "rescue" them.

Immediately two people popped into my mind both with completely different stories in their lives, but both are in desperate need to change their lives.

As you all know that have read my blog for awhile I have struggled with my faith and my relationship with God. My grief and anger has been my main focus and most driving force the last 3+ years. Although I don't make New Years Resolutions, I did try and make a committment to myself to change that part of my life. It won't be easy since I still don't have my son nor do I have any more children. Two things that I am VERY unhappy with in my life.

What I can do is not focus on what I don't have in my life but what I can help add to somebody else's life just by caring about them and help them build this relationship that we all sometimes seem to take for granted.

Can you think of two people who need to be rescued this year?

Listen to this sermon from Dr. Carter.

"Call on God, but row away from the rocks." That's an old expression from another country. Sometimes, we're the ones in peril who need rescue, first, and have the God-given grace to succeed. Sounds like you've located the oars ;) I'll pray for you
