The story of the rescue of the Chilean miners teaches us how Satan takes our joy and tries to turn it into disaster. This tragic story and the aftermath is a powerful reminder to always be aware of the attacks against us (Ephesians 6:10-12).
My faith in the Lord and in His powerful gospel (Romans 1:16) is constantly reinforced when I see folks at our local rescue mission http://www.rescuemissionep.com/default.htm responding to gospel teaching. We’ve seen five folks respond in just the past six months, and we praise the Lord for their obedient response. All we have to do is plant and water, and God gives the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6-7).
Here’s an interesting “good news” story from our local newspaper about a lost dog by the name of “Patches,” and the efforts to find him.
After reading this “search and rescue” story, I wonder what would happen if we as Christians put as much effort into “searching” and “rescuing” those who are lost in sin, as this lady did in finding this lost dog.
It’s something to think about!
