I was recently provided a copy of Kelli Worrall’s new book titled, Pierced & Embraced. It is an excellent book examining the encounters Christ had with seven women as recorded in the Gospels.
I was riveted from the outset.
You will see more clearly how Jesus cares for you as He interacted with the following women:
- Mary, His Mother
- Woman at the well
- Woman with the hemorrhage
- Woman caught in adultery
- Mary and Martha
- Woman with the alabaster jar
- Mary Magdalene
Kelli shares candidly about her own struggles with the road before her, but she doesn’t leave us there. Through her story we learn how to relate to the way Jesus relates to all of us from time to time.
Maybe you are facing your own piercing season where there is no comfort to be found. Maybe it’s time to allow the Savior to embrace you in the pain and disappointment. Maybe you will find solace in how Christ comforted Mary and Martha in the loss of their brother. Maybe you will find healing in how Christ’s power touched the woman who had a hemorrhage for 12+ years. Or maybe you’ll relate to the woman caught in sin and how Christ didn’t condemn her but loved her then encouraged her to go and sin no more.
Whatever you are facing, this book will capture your heart, challenge your thinking and inspire you to draw nearer to Him. He was pierced for our transgressions, and His love is fierce.
