Rescued to Remember
As a church and as Christ followers, we have been challenged to improve our Biblical literacy. Many of us have embraced CBR-Community Bible Reading and we have not only read but journaled the attributes of God that we are discovering as we read through these daily passages.
In addition to CBR, many of the women at Living Hope have joined the 1 John and Judges studies. In 1 John, we learned of the lavish love of our Heavenly Father for us, His beloved children. As we are working through Judges, we are seeing that in spite of our “cycle of sin”, He still rescues and redeems us-because of His great love for us. In Judges, we see again and again, our need to be rescued and that we have been rescued to remember.
As we, LH Women, look toward our retreat in April, we come with much head knowledge, but that alone cannot change us. Our hearts must be changed also. We can no longer embrace those things that separate us from God. Our thoughts and motives must be examined and replaced.
In April, we will hear from women as they share their stories of how God took their brokenness and transformed their lives; how He used their past to mold them into who they are today and how they are using their “stories of the past” to bring Him glory. Their newly rescued and redeemed lives reflect the Hope of Christ-the hope that we can each have as we remember Him and all that He has done for us.
Bless the LORD,O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits,
Who forgives all your iniquity,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
Who satisfies you with good,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
