Kate said rescue.
I love the word RESCUE. And, I venture to say it is because I was gloriously rescued a long time ago.
The entire Bible has a theme of rescue. One can go back through the Old Testament stories of rescue. Adam and Eve. Noah. Moses. Abraham. Joseph. Rahab. Esther. Ruth. Etcetera.
New Testament has the Greatest Rescue Story.
God so loved the world that He sent The Rescuer to die a horrible death on a cross. The Rescuer, Jesus, died. Was buried. Resurrected on the third day – anyone who believes on Him, The Rescuer, will be rescued from eternal separation from God. [from John 3.16]
No regrets. The day He rescued me – I can never forget.
These precious ones weren’t rescued but they are with The Rescuer now.
