Jesus, Rescue Me

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by SueJLove, Mar 19, 2015.

  1. In the book of Romans, chapter 7, Paul described for us the struggle with sin that we have in our flesh natures. The good we want to do, we do not do, and the evil we don’t want to do, we end up doing. Paul came to the conclusion, “Oh, what a wretched man I am!” Then, he asked, “Who will rescue me from the body of death?” And, then he answered the question, “Thanks be to God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!” We, as believers in Jesus Christ, are rescued! Amen! We no longer have to be in bondage (slavery) to sin!

    At the time the Lord Jesus gave me this song, I was going a direction which I thought was ok. I mean, I was not sinning, at least not that I knew. But, he sees what we don’t see ahead, which is why he often warns us of danger in advance, and we will do well to heed his warnings and to not go where he says don’t go. In this way, he is also rescuing us.

    Jesus, Rescue Me / An Original Work / September 18, 2011
    Based off of Romans 7:7-8:39

    Jesus, rescue me today.
    Listen while I bow and pray.
    I need Your help to obey You;
    Live for You always.
    Meet me in my hour of need, Lord,
    As I pray to You.
    Help me walk in fellowship, Lord,
    Living in Your truth.
    Jesus, how I long for You to
    Change my heart anew.

    Father, God, my heart’s desire
    Is to live for You this hour
    In Your Holy Spirit’s power
    Living in me now.
    Teach me to walk in Your love, Lord,
    Guiding me each day.
    Help me to show love and kindness
    To the lost, I pray.
    Father, teach me to love others
    As You love always.

    Holy Spirit come in pow’r.
    Revive our hearts in this hour.
    Change our hearts to be like You, Lord;
    Live for You each day.
    Help us to forsake our sins, Lord,
    As we humbly pray.
    Teach us how to live for You, Lord,
    Obey You always.
    Holy Spirit come in power,
    Revive us today.

  2. That verse immediately reminded me of 1 Corinthians 9, last two verses, where he says, "I beat my body and take hold of it... Lest I be disqualified". So handing ourselves over to Christ to be able to overcome is critical. The old serpent hates those who oppose him and will have his cronies attack, but the victory as mentioned is already ours, we just need to believe and focus our lives, minds, actions in the right place. In Yeshua. Slavery is a thing of the past, Hallelujah!
