Teamwork, Heroes And Grace
The novel has many Godly themes including those of forgiveness and grace. Life can be hard at times. We make mistakes. Others make mistakes. We must forgive or anger will destroy us. “You keep feeding that anger… and it’s going to consume you.” Sometimes it is ourselves we need to forgive. God’s grace covers everything and everyone. “Everyone deserves a shot at a second chance.”
Sometimes we believe we are beyond the reach of God. “God doesn’t show up for bitter, angry guys like me.” God longs to love us, heal us and set us free from the bondage we have placed on ourselves. “You can be free. It’s all about letting God in.” True freedom comes with love and truth. “You aren’t free when you’re trapped inside guilt and lies.” The truth will set us free.
God rescues us from ourselves. He searches us out and will never leave us alone. In the novel the motif for God pursuing us is seen in the efforts of the PEAK rescue team who search and search until they find and rescue.
We need to beware of complacency. Just because we are Christians does not mean we will not fall into sin. “None of us are immune to the darkness.” We need to keep our eyes on God at all times and seek His light.
If there are family rifts, we need to heal them. A family united has less chance of falling than a divided one.
Hearts are not meant to be locked away. Walls erected to protect our hearts imprison us to a lonely life. We need to break down the walls and take a chance on love.
Rescue Me was a marvellous, compulsive read full of the heart of God. I loved it.
