The Cross provides a dramatic rescue.
I reckon the work done by helicopter rescue crews and paramedics is amazing, don’t you?
When I see people dangling at the end of a rope from those choppers, I just think about how amazing it is that people can be rescued this way from dangerous places!
The story of Rahab in the Bible is also all about a dramatic rescue using a lifeline. She was a woman with a colourful past who lived in Jericho. When the walls came tumbling down she was dramatically saved. She hung a red rope from her window, a sign of the promise that she was to be rescued.
That red rope was a beautiful symbol of the Cross of Jesus.
The Cross provides a rescue that’s way more dramatic than any helicopter.
Because, today, whoever holds on to the red rope of what Jesus did at Calvary, whoever relies on it as their hope, will not perish, but will have eternal life.
