You must leave this scarlet rope hanging from the window.
He weaves a thread all through history that He is coming then the Cross proclaims He has come. He gives the gift of Himself to us just a lowly, lonesome, sin filled people and He loves us.
Abundant life : to believe that God is where you doubt He can be – Ann Voskamp
Rahab a women of the night dares to believe a single scarlet rope hanging in her window is the the symbol of salvation. She goes on to marry a Jewish prince named Salmon, becomes the mother in law of Ruth; and the great grandmother of King David. This women believed God would save her and He did.
ADVENT – scarlet lifeline of Christ has come
Ann asks and will you join in answering
Do you know what its like to have a bad reputation? What does it mean to you that God’s grace is enough to cover any kind of past?
Rahab was remembered for her faith. What would you want to be remembered for?
Take time to thank Jesus for being your scarlet rope of salvation.
eyes looking shamefully
mouths speak distain
hearts full of disgust
that feeling of a walking yet empty vessel
searching for a cure
the longing to fill the void pressing
to sad and dirty lengths to find filling
only to never find the satisfaction or the love promised
God chases those with broken reputation
those with marred and jaded pasts
scoops us up in his arms
and pours the oil of love over us
filling every crack with the divine
Grace Grace Gods Grace
Grace that is greater than all my sins
I was wretched but now made whole
I have only but thanks and praise
I could never fill that hole
but He gave Himself to me
and called me righteous
Say that I loved Him
that I did what He asked of me
that I loved others
that I lived unafraid to display Him
Thank you Jesus for that cord
thank you for the blood let covering
The Cross that makes my reputation and my sin
