their faith in Him.
OUR CONDITIONS BEFORE SALVATION :

The child has never been washed.

FOR. (verse 4-5)

neither was it washed, salted or
swaddled. No one cared if it live or
die.

field naked, and exposed to the elements.

4. AS LOST SINNERS WE WERE UNCLAIMED.
(verse 5)

nor father would claim it as their own.
We were orphaned and all
alone in this world without God.

5. AS LOST SINNERS OUR SITUATION
WERE UNCONTROLLABLE. (v.4-5)

This new born baby was totally helpless
to change its condition/situation.
We were lost, we were in a
shape and situation that we
cannot change.
God pictures Himself as One passing by
who sees the child & stooped down to
rescue it from a certain death.
This is also the picture of what the LORD
has done to everyone
who placed their faith in Him.
HOW GOD REVEALED HIS GRACE:
1. HE CAME TO US. (verse 6)
Knowing this childs inability to come to Him,
God made the first move.

We should be grateful that the
LORD is the One who is seeking &
saving sinners today.
2. HE HAD COMPASSION ON US. (v.8)
In spite of our sinful condition, God still
loved us. He looked upon sinful man and
saw what needed to be done and He did.

The LORD commanded the child to live.
The LORD gives us eternal life through
His Son Jesus Christ.

4. HE COVERED US WITH HIMSELF. (v.9)

garment over this child thereby covering
its nakedness.
When we got saved, we entered
into a place of shelter where we
are forever covered by the LORD.
5. HE CLAIMED US AS HIS OWN. (v.8)

The spreading of the garment over
another was used to claim that one
as your own.
When we were saved, we were
also claimed by the LORD. He
adopted us into His family.

washed away all the impurities from her.

us.
