Place of Safety

An evacuation is when people are moved from a dangerous place to one that is safe. In 480 BC, 100,000 people left the city of Athens because the Persian army was coming to attack them. During World War II, many people were evacuated to places of safety.
Throughout history, millions of people have moved from a dangerous place to a place of safety. Many people in the world today are in danger of going to hell. But Jesus died so that these people could go to a place of safety and joy.
In our verses today, Paul reminds the Christians in Colossae that they had been brought to a place of safety through Jesus. “God made us free from the power of darkness. And he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son” (verse 13).
Are you in a safe place? Have you obeyed God and given your life to Him? Thank Him today for the safety we can have through Jesus Christ.
