Salvation

Firemen have special clothing and equipment to protect them when they are fighting a fire. These things are helpful, but sometimes firemen must do something special to keep safe.
My husband used to drive a fire truck. One time a fireman was 40 feet up on a ladder. Suddenly, the wall of the building started to fall. My husband quickly swung the ladder away from the wall just in time. However, my husband didn’t notice that the back of his coat was smoking. Another fireman turned a hose on him and put out the fire. That is how the firemen saved each other from injury.
In our Bible Reading today, Isaiah talks about how God loves His people and takes care of them. God loves us so much that He was willing to send His only Son to die for our sins. Just as firemen work hard to keep each other safe from the fire, God has saved us from eternal punishment.
Praise and thank God for salvation through Jesus.
