From Recover to Rescue

Passage: Jeremiah 4:11-12,Jeremiah 4:22-28,1 Timothy 1:12-17,Luke 15:1-10

What a fascinating contrast of images in our lessons today. Jeremiah prophesies punishment and destruction, but Paul writes of amazing grace, and Jesus promises great rejoicing in heaven over a single forgiven sinner. Summing up all of salvation history, these scriptures remind us that our journey of faith is one of failure and forgiveness—toward a God who unbelievably desires us to be found…and rescued.
