Our Pastor Tommy Weldy preached a sermon from Mark 2, wow such a beautiful sermon. Jesus is our healer of hope when life has you down on your knees I have been just like you yes I just want to throw my hands up and give up but what gave me hope is remembering these words by our sweet pastor he said simply this that changed my life Jesus knows your heart and your situation, as many of you know I injured my back running., truthfully I was upset about it I never thought I would heal but instead of complaining about it, I went to Resurgeons and did months of physical therapy and I have gotten a little better and I praise God that he heard my cry, God is our healer With ought a doubt, I said these words to Tommy I might not being the one running anymore but I can lead a soul to Christ, For it still takes the Blood for a soul to be saved, so the ball is in your court are you willing to get a soul to Jesus. Tommy also preached from Joshua 2 about the spies that entered the land. The analogy I got from this we are like that lady on the roof we must reach down a cord to sinners she threw down a scarlet cord and brought the men to safety. I think of Rapunzel too of her long beautiful hair, what if you let down your braids and sinners climb to Jesus, so imagine being Rehab now or even Rapunzel. Jesus wants his child back so if you strayed away from him he is calling out your name now and to the lost sinner for there is people like Rehab in the World that would loved to see you saved by his marvelous Grace.
As Rahab offered to shelter the spies and aid them in their escape, she received from them the promise that when they returned to her country, along with Joshua and his army, that she and her family would be spared alive. While her sin had possibly estranged her from her loved ones, she was concerned about their safety as well as her own. Rahab wanted the kindness she was showing the spies to be kind, and they assured her that she would be dealt with “kindly and truly.” That red token at the window was likewise a signal to the outside world that Rahab believed in the ultimate triumph of Jehovah. Her faith is what all of us need now, let down the scarlet cord Jesus is calling the sinner be saved.
