2 Timothy 3 vs 11
“Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them.”
Paul mentions several times the persecution that he faced. He speaks in length of all that has happened to him since becoming a follower of Christ, yet there is no bitterness from the past nor fear for the future. The reason lies in his close walk with God and how he can confidently say of his persecution and trials:
“The Lord rescued me from it all.”
As I thought about how God rescues us from every trial, I was playing with the word “Rescuer” in my head. It was one of those “tip of my tongue” moments where I knew that there had to be a better word, and so I popped “name of someone who rescues” into the google search.
The first answer that I received brought a smile to my lips:
“A person who rescues someone in danger is called a Savior.”
How thankful I am for a God who not only rescues me from trials and persecutions, but a God who saves me from sin and who takes away all fear for the future.
Luke 2 vs 11
“For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
