Scripture- Judges 3:15a- But when the people of Israel cried out to the Lord for help, the
Lord again raised up a rescuer to save them.
Observations- The pattern of disobedience, consequences, crying out for help, God sending a judge to rescue the people, and a period of extended peace kept being lived out time and time again in the life of the Israelites. The leaders God raised up were brutal and imperfect at best.
Application- The all too human rescuers we find in the Book of Judges imperfectly point to our need for a Perfect Rescuer. They are flawed characters that can only help so much.
Jesus Christ hears our cries and is the only One who can ultimately help with what we need the most- salvation here and now and at the end of time or the end of our time.
Prayer- Lord, thank You for rescuing me from my sin, selfishness, and my extensive imperfections. You are perfect, and I am not. I stand in need of what You offer in every moment of my life! Help me, Lord. Save me to the uttermost! I was saved in the past, I am saved today, and I will be completely saved in the future one day. Amen.
