Parent Ministry Sermons - Outstretched Arms

  1. 1. Parent Ministry Sermons - Outstretched Arms www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  2. 2. A story from Scotland tells of a mother’s dramatic rescue of her child. Workmen were blasting rock in a quarry. One day after they had attached the fuse and retired to a safe place and gave the alarm they saw a three year old child wandering across the open space where danger threatened. Every passing second meant death was closing in on the child. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  3. 3. The workmen called to the child and waved their arms, but he only looked on their strange antics with amusement. No man dared run forward knowing the explosion was only seconds away. The child most certainly would have been killed, had not his mother appeared at this moment of crisis. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  4. 4. Taking in the situation at a glance she did what her mother’s heart dictated. She did not run toward her son or yell to frighten him. Instead, she knelt down, opened wide her arms and smiled for him to come. Instantly the child ran towards her. Shortly later the area shook with the force of the explosion, yet the child was safe in his mother’s arms. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  5. 5. What a picture of the grace of God and of the cross. With outstretched arms on the cross Jesus gives his gracious invitation to the world. Indicating we are to come to him for eternal safety. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
