Pulling Them Out of the Fire

Welcome to the Sermon Recap!

Before we get into the message, I have a few Scriptures for you.

Genesis 37:28 – “Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.”

Exodus 2:10 – “And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.”

Jeremiah 38:13 – “So they drew up Jeremiah with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.”

Daniel 6:23 – “Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.”

Daniel 3:26 – “Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.”

Jonah 2:10 – “And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.”

Matthew 14:29-32 – “And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.”

Now, this message is based on this Scripture right here.

Jude 1:21-23 – “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.”

We need a burden to pull people out of the fire.

There are people who have saved individuals from drowning, prison, violence, and fires. I would like to talk to you today about the importance of saving people from not a natural fire, but a spiritual one.

Fear is a feeling of fright or a strong respect for something that is life-threatening or alarming. Sin is dangerous, life-threatening, and very alarming to a person’s soul. Sin should not be tolerated nor the effect of it be watered down.

We have the ability to pull, to snatch, people out of dangerous situations. A human has a soul that will spend eternity somewhere and maybe God put us in a specific person’s life to reach for them and pull them out of the fire. There are people out there who just need to know that there’s someone praying for them and reaching for them. They need to know that someone cares about them and is willing to help them.

There was a little man who called me one day asking if there was hope for him despite his choices, his actions, and the way his life had spiraled into a mess. Of course, there was hope for him in Jesus! He came to church, got gloriously saved, and he told the one who took him to church that it was the best day of his life. He said he had never felt so much peace and joy.

This little man leaves church, goes home, changes clothes, makes himself a sandwich and never gets to eat it. His heart busted and he went to Heaven. He was pulled out of the fire about 2 hours before he died.

How great would it be to get to Heaven and bring others with you!

If we are going to win souls, we have to learn how to love people. Everyone needs someone that will pray for them, reach for them, love them, help them, and stand in the gap for them. Let us not give up on people!

There was a little preacher I knew, and he had backslid. I bumped into him in a hospital elevator one day and the Lord spoke to me to tell him something. So I said, “I have a word for you.”

He straightened up into defense mode and readied himself for a slur of hateful comments or a chastising message. But that’s not what the Lord wanted to say.

I looked at him and said, “Jesus really misses you. The enemy told you that you’ve gone too far, but the devil is a liar, and Jesus is waiting on you. He misses you.”

After about 2 weeks, he was back in church.

I could have ripped into that little man and said that he was a disappointment, that he was a loser and a failure. But when I walked by his casket, I was so glad I didn’t.

God has had so much mercy on us, let us not be mean or hateful towards anyone.

Today would be a good day to renew your passion for pulling people out of the fire. Whisper to the Lord, let Him hear your desire and ask Him to use you to reach into someone’s life with love and mercy. We can’t deal with every person the same way, but the Lord gives us wisdom on how to deal with people. Ask Him to use you to help someone.

I hope you enjoyed this Sermon Recap and I’m so glad that you took time out of your day to read this post. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. God bless you! If you would like to hear more on this message the video sermon is below.
