Reminded of Deliverance

Our Sinful Condition
Our Longing for Deliverance
Our Rescue by Christ
Through the Lens of Widows
Widows, orphans, and strangers are all in unique positions of risk
Jeremiah 7:5-7

“5 “For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, 6 if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, 7 then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.”
Job 29:12-13

"12 because I delivered the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had none to help him. 13 The blessing of him who was about to perish came upon me, and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.”

Their obvious physical condition was a reminder of their former physical condition of slavery in Egypt.
Deuteronomy 24:18

“You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore I command you to do this.”
Psalm 61:1-4

“1 Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; 2 from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, 3 for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. 4 Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!”
Psalm 63:1

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”

Through the Lens of the Widow
Ruth and Naomi, both widows, are rescued by their Kinsman Redeemer, Boaz, who is a clear picture of Christ.
The Kinsman Redeemer takes on their debts and problems and rescues them at his own cost.
Through the Lens of
Captive Israel
In the Passover Meal it is the sweetness of the Charoset on the unleavened bread and the wine that removes the tears from the horseradish and the bitterness from the salted parsley
Three Truths Through Two Lenses for Us Today
John 6:47-51

“47 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”
