Powerpoint Picture: House on Fire; Sinking Ship; Hole; Lift; Busy Road; Stuck on Zip Wire
There are a number of big words that sum up what the Bible teaches about what God has done for us, and it turns out that these words end in SHUN!
Think about some of the different situations people might need rescuing from. [House on fire; sinking ship; fallen down a hole; stuck in a lift; child standing in middle of a busy road; middle of a zip wire].
It is possible that in your lifetime you might need rescuing from one of more of these situations.
There is however one situation which we all need rescuing from.
Because we are all sinners, we are all rebel against God and fail to obey His Word – we are all facing God’s judgment in hell.
The question is: “Is there any good news for sinners going to hell?”
The answer is a big word that ends in SHUN!
Salva-SHUN! which means Sinners saved from hell.
The Bible is a rescue story about how God has provided a way for sinners to be saved from hell. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
God loves us – sinners going to hell – so much that He sent His Son Jesus into the world to die in our place and take the punishment of hell we deserve – so that if we believe in Him, if we trust Him to save us – we can be saved from hell, we shall not perish but have eternal life in heaven.
