This morning my daughter burnt her hand on a hot pan. The continuous screams … the heart wrenching cries of “IT BURNS! MOMMY IT BURNS!! IT BURNS!!!” … While my heart broke for her in the moment, my mind took a leap in to the future of so many who will feel a burn that’s even more intense. The only difference is that there will be no cold water, ice cubes, burn cream, pain relief ointment, aloe plants … nothing … absolutely nothing will available to provide these precious souls with a moment of relief. Nothing will be there to take the burn away. The only opportunity they have to avoid such a horrible fate is if we determine to provide the burn relief now.
“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father”
Galatians 1:4-5 NASB
I don’t know about you … but today this places a permanent smile on my heart. I have been rescued by the Only One who can save me – and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. He rescued me from a life spent in torment.
Let Him rescue you today … He died too … did you know that …
