All alone, on the dark sea, growing very weary,
Greg was drifting farther and farther from the safety of shore. How many of
us are drifting on lifes sea away from the God who made us and loves us.
He made us not as a lower animal that is not capable of knowing him, but as
a living soul, with a heart that can know, love, and obey him. Instead of
doing Gods will we have all sought to please ourselves and because of our
self-centeredness have drifted far from God and fallen into sin and done
what is hateful in his sight. All have
sinned and come short of the glory of God.
He loves us and in order to bring us back to himself he sent his Son into
the world. The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Not
counting the cost, or the pain, he went all the way to the cross. If I be
lifted up, the Lord Jesus said referring to his death on the cross, I will
draw all men unto me. Now all who realize their lost condition can come to
God the Father through him. The only way for a sinner to be safe is to trust
in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. The blood he shed on the cross is
able to wash away every spot of sin. The blood of Jesus Christ Gods Son
cleanseth us from all sin.
