Are You Worth Saving?

A little boy was swimming in a lake. It was a beautiful day and he was enjoying the cool water and the blue sky. Suddenly he became sick and started to sink beneath the surface and called for help. He went under once…twice…and then felt the secure arms of a strong man surround him. The man carried him to safety.

When they arrived on shore, the little boy said to the man, “Thank you, sir. Thank you for saving my life.”

“You’re welcome, son,” said the man. “But see to it that you are worth saving!”

The Lord not only saves those who call upon Him, but He puts His strong arms around us and protects us as we face the dangers of life. There are times when doubt distracts us and fears threaten us. There are days when worries overwhelm us and cares cripple us. Yet, when we turn to the Lord and trust Him, His grace is sufficient and His mercy enduring. He is always ready to deliver us from the disasters that would destroy us.

It is not enough that we are grateful for our salvation. We must be worth it. And how do we show our worth? Through loving service to those in need.

Prayer: Christ Jesus, our Savior, we are thankful for the security of Your salvation and the knowledge that we are secure in Your arms. May we show You our gratitude by reaching out to others to bring them Your salvation. In Your Name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Romans 5:1-11
