Good to know help is on its way

Last week I ended up in hospital unexpectedly. Apart from being totally impressed by the standard of care I received I saw this wonderful sight out of my ward window - a Sea King Rescue Helicopter.

I'm not just thinking about the thrill of the machine or excitement of flying but reflecting on what that yellow bird must mean to you when you think hope is lost and you are about to give up. It becomes your saviour, the way to life, the means of your escape.

This is exactly the way you would view Jesus Christ if you understood the danger you were in. If we grasped that we are broken and in danger of God's judgment we would appreciate the salvation and rescue that is available through Jesus Christ.

Two verses from the bible as I close:

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners - 1 Timothy 1.15

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life - John 3.16

All posts have the aim of pointing people to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour or to aid Christian growth and development.
