WHAT HOPE DO YOU HAVE
The story is told of a boy walking on a beach. Encountering hundreds of starfish dying under the heat of the burning sun, he started throwing them back into the sea. A passer-by asked, “What are you doing?”. “Saving their lives” the boy replied. “Son,” the man said, “don’t you realise there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t possibly make a difference!” Bending down the boy picked up another starfish and threw it back into the surf. “It made a difference to that one”, he said.
When the wave of sin threw us on to the shore to die, God sent His Son to walk on the beach to rescue all who would repent. And as Jesus tells His listeners in Luke 15, each time someone is rescued, heaven throws a party.
Has heaven rejoiced over your rescue? If not, why not repent right now, turn from the life you are living to a life worth living – in Jesus.
