Maybe you’ve never been lost or abandoned. Maybe you’ve never had that moment in your life when you felt like you needed a superhero to swoop in to save you. Maybe you’ve never come face to face with a life or death moment. But we’ve all needed rescued at one point or another. Maybe you were lost as a child and you panicked when you couldn’t find your parents. Perhaps you needed someone to come to your aide when your day threw you so hard for a loop that you couldn’t find which way was up. No matter what the apparent devastation you’ve faced, there’s a deeper hurt and bigger emergency from which we need saving.
In the life of the Christian, the saving we need isn’t from darkness or bullies. It’s from sin. When we truly realize just how bad our sin is, then we’ll see plain as day just how big of a rescue story we’re already living. We might not be stranded on a boat in the middle of the ocean but sin is an even greater storm.
This week’s music Monday reminds us that we bring nothing to God but our problems and our pains, yet he so willingly rescues us. Not only that but he also is right there waiting for us to call out for help. He’s by our side. Fighting for us in ways we often don’t even realize. Jesus is our rescue story. Fall on him today and trust him to save you from the troubles surrounding you.
