Jewel # 109 (April 17, 2012)

"And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts,
in that day when I make up
My Jewels." 
(Malachi 3:17)

To my dear grandchildren.

Six-Mile Fall

Vicky, a 31-year old airline attendant, fell six miles without a parachute and lived to tell the story.

The plane in which she was an attendant exploded in the air.  She was making coffee in the back of the aircraft when the explosion took place.  "I don't remember anything," she says.  But one thing she does know is that for some reason she is the only survivor of the strange accident.

What Vicky does not talk about is that for some reason God has spared her life.  We hope she thanks Him as much as she thanked the person that found her in the plane's wreckage.  "The man that pulled me from the wreckage burned his hands from the hot metal," she says.  When Vicky met him later, she said, I was so happy - I kissed his hands!"  But what the Lord Jesus has done for her can save her soul; He died for her!  His hands and feet were nailed to Calvary's cross and His side was pierced, from which flowed soul-saving blood.  

"The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7)     

Have you realized you are completely helpless to save your own soul, and have you accepted Jesus as your Saviour?  Vicky had no choice; she was completely helpless.  Her rescuer, a forest worker, was nearby and heard the noise of the airplane metal falling down the mountain and heard her screams.  The Lord Jesus sees your need of His saving power, and because He loves you so much, He is offering you salvation completely free.  

"Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).

Will you accept the soul-saving offer that cost the Lord Jesus His life?

Love you all,
Grandpa
