Jesus, My Savior

Many years ago, I taught fourth grade in San Antonio, Texas. Often I went outside and played baseball with the boys from my class. I was not a good player. Most of the time I just tried to not get hit by the ball. One time a ball almost hit me. One of the bigger boys said to me,
“Teacher, you’d better stand behind me. Then you won’t be hurt!”
This experience made me think about Jesus. Often in life we face problems. If Jesus is our Savior, we can “stand behind Him.” Then He will help us get through that bad experience or difficult time.
Our Bible Reading today talks about Jesus being our Savior. God loves all people. He loves us so much that He doesn’t want us to be punished for our sins. That is why God sent Jesus to die on the cross. Jesus saved us from the punishment of our sins.
I hope that Jesus is your Savior, too. Then you can stand behind Jesus when problems and troubles happen. He will always be there to help you.
