January 24 – Emergency Rescue Effort
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
R OMA N S 6 : 2 3
God created humanity to walk with him in a close relationship. Sin is defined as anything that lets go of his hand and steps away from him. Sin is a “work” of our heart that leads us away from the life God created humans to have. Since God is the author of all life, the consequence of the refusal to walk with God is to miss out on God’s life. We all get paid for our work. If the
work is sin, however, then the paycheck is nasty.
Even after humans walked away and found themselves in serious peril, God went on a dramatic rescue mission. He sent his Son, Jesus, the greatest emergency response expert the world has ever seen, to save people who wandered away from life. He reaches out to those who got lost, extends his arms just as their lives hang in the balance, and urges them, Grab my hand!
Pray for the Day:
Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross and saving me from my sin. Please help me live the life you have given me. Amen.
