Good morning and God Bless, This morning have you ever realized that as a believer in Jesus Christ we have been given a responsibility to rescue people from death. When I look for wisdom from scripture I go to the book of Proverbs and this morning I was looking at Proverbs 24:11-12:

11 Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. 12 If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work? (ESV)

The first verse makes it rather clear that those who are able are to do everything in their power rescue those who are stumbling towards death. However, the second verse warns us that if we try to say that we did not know this was going to happen God has basically called us to account for it and what we have done or not done will be held to our account in the end. I wanted to share that with you because today we have a choice to make are we going to do what we can to rescue those we meet who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and shepherd or are we going to allow them to continue down the path that leads to destruction.

Now there is a particular way in which God has called us to do this it is found in John 13:34:35:
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (ESV)

We are to love one another. If we look at the book of Isaiah we see an example of how we are to do this in action.
6 “No, this is the kind of fasting I want: Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people.7 Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Isaiah 58:6-7 (NLT)

Each of us can do something in order to help rescue those who are lost and headed towards death. It requires we allow God to show us were we can do the most good. Not that this will always be the most comfortable place. However if it is in God’s will it will be the most beneficial experience you will ever have. I pray God leads you to someone today that needs rescuing as you walk in the light of His Word.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
