The Grand National

This weekend is the Grand National at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool. I am reliably informed that there is standing room only, all the tickets have sold. Quite amazing really when you consider the financial state of our nation and the constant encouragement to tighten our belts financially speaking. Its a day out, a bit of fun, a chance to forget our worries and enjoy ourselves. I am sure that these are among the many reasons given for spending the money.

How do you cope with pressure? What is your escape value? We are all different and cope in differing ways. The bible points us ultimately to God and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God says in Isaiah - 'Look unto me and be ye saved all you ends of the earth for I am God and there is none else'. God is offering rescue and deliverance from the ultimate danger - the second death, which means permanent separation from God, love, joy, hope and all that is good. God is saying He is the only means of salvation. God has made this available through the death and resurrection of his own Son, Jesus Christ.

'Neither is there salvation in any other for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved'.

This is a grand and international, timeless message. may God bless you today.
