Us and Him

th-4We had an incredible session on BlogTalkRadio last night with our guest, Rebecca Bender. You will definitely want to hear it on demand if you missed it live. Rebecca’s story of how she was rescued from human sex trafficking literally by Jesus is truly amazing.

Meeting Jesus gave her a new perspective on herself. She realized she was known and loved by God; she was important to Him, and the way she was being treated was wrong. She told us how step by step God counseled her out of slavery and into freedom.

It is unbelievable the difference Christ can make in a life. For Rebecca, it was truly a God thing. She even related a part of her story where one of the women who was also trapped in this sinister business brought her a specific message from God that was critical to protecting her, and this woman didn’t even know God!

There is nothing more powerful than the power of love, and it was that power that set her free.

I was reminded of the woman caught in the act of adultery who was thrown before Jesus by a group of self-righteous men who treated her as a perpetrator, and how Jesus saw her as a victim, forgave her, and restored her, setting her free from any condemnation. I’ve often thought of that intimate moment when all the accusers were gone and it was just Jesus and the woman, and realize that we all have that moment with Jesus when we come to Him and confess our sins. Suddenly it’s just us and Him.

Do you know that moment? You can.

Where Did They Go?
by John Fischer

Where did they go
Where did they go
All of those men who had so much to say
Just a few minutes ago
Where did they go
Where did they go
I looked up and saw no one but you
Standing in a street strewn with stones

You are no loser
And where are your accusers
There’s just you and me
Just you and me

What was that sound
What was that sound
What was that pounding in my ear
As their stones hit the ground
Why are you here
Woman why are you still here
Are you waiting for something from me
Well you have nothing to fear

You are no loser
You’ve got no accusers
There’s just you and me
Just you and me

Where will you go
Tell me where will you go
Will you go back to living your life
The only way that you know
I see no sin
You don’t have to give in
There’s no reason to go back to living
The way that you’ve been

You are no loser
You’ve got no accusers
There’s just you and me
Just you and me
