What do you think?
…L I F E is God’s gift to us, and I think we should be encouraged and determined to take the higher road and live life God’s way. (ew)
Here’s an Illustration that might give us a visual image of our hopelessness without Jesus and also how powerful Jesus is to rescue us from any situation:
“Rising early one morning, I heard the baying of a score of deer hounds in pursuit of their quarry. Looking away to a broad, open field in front of me, I saw a young fawn making its way across, and giving signs, moreover, that its race was well nigh run. Reaching the rails of the enclosure, it leaped over and crouched within ten feet from where I stood. A moment later two of the hounds came over, when the fawn ran in my direction and pushed its head between my legs. I lifted the little thing to my breast, and, swinging round and round, fought off the dogs. I felt, just then, that all the dogs in the West could not, and should not capture that fawn after its weakness had appealed to my strength.” (source not known)
This visual image of what that man did for the helpless fawn is exactly what Jesus does for us! And that is God’s attitude toward all of us when we appeal to Him in our weakness! That is God’s Grace!
