Often ships or airplanes will have escape hatches. These are special ways to get off the ship or out of the plane if there is an emergency. Escape hatches are developed to save people’s lives.
Every person on earth faces an emergency situation in their life. This situation happens when they realize that they are sinners. God has said that sin must be punished by spiritual death. That means everyone who sins must be separated from God forever.
But God made a way so that we can escape this punishment and separation. John 17:2-3 tells us about that way of escape. “You gave the Son power over all people so that he could give eternal life to all those you have given to him. And this is eternal life: that people can know you, the only true God, and that they can know Jesus Christ, the one you sent.” Our escape hatch is Jesus!
God sent Jesus to earth to make the sacrifice for our sins. When we know that we are a sinner and obey God’s Word, we can escape the punishment that we deserve. We can become clean and pure again.
God found the perfection solution to our emergency situation — Jesus! I hope you look forward to serving Him every day and living with Him forever!
