There are times when each of us find ourselves in need of help or rescuing, so we probably call one of the following:

  • Police
  • Ambulance or doctor
  • Fire brigade
  • Coastguard or lifeboat
  • Car breakdown service

We put our lives and our future in their hands, in the knowledge that they will do what is best for us.

When it comes to God we shouldn’t wait until we’re in trouble before we turn to Him, instead we should be letting Him rescue us before we even get into trouble.

This song by Rend Collective sums this up really well – here’s them singing Rescuer

There is good news for the captive, good news for the shamed
There is good news for the one who walked away
There is good news for the doubter, the one religion failed
For the Good Lord has come to seek and save

He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)

He is beauty for the blind man, riches for the poor
He is friendship for the one the world ignores
He is pasture for the weary, rest for those who strive
For the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life
Yes the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life (Hey!)

He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)

So come and be chainless
Come and be fearless
Come to the foot of Calvary
‘Cause there is redemption
For every affliction
Here at the foot of Calvary
So come and be chainless (Come and be chainless)
Come and be fearless (Come and be fearless)
Come to the foot of Calvary
‘Cause there is redemption
For every affliction (For every affliction)
Here at the foot of Calvary

Oh He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore (We are free indeed)
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)
