Rescued! by Antje Hill
John 3:16, NKJV: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son….”
The morning air was cool as we drove down our little lane to a beautiful ranch near our home. Unlike Easters from my childhood, this was scheduled at a more reasonable hour, making it not really a Sunrise Service. But that didn’t detract from the gathering of people from different faiths to celebrate the season. Cool weather and wet grass had driven the services inside to the Auction Building where there were bleachers to accommodate the 100 plus people that gathered. Inside meant electricity for musical instruments and places for coffee, juice and breakfast foods. The setting had become a very special part of early morning Easter in the hearts of the people in our little town.
On this Sunday, our minister had been asked to speak. His words were crisp, “The first Easter was a rescue mission.” He compared it to news stories of rescues of miners, and others trapped in life-threatening situations. He compared it to what Christ did for us at Easter. As I looked around the Auction Barn, I thought of how He bought me as a young girl. Jesus paid the price for me to walk with Him, not just someday, but on a daily basis even now.
Have you looked up the word ‘rescue’ lately? Webster says it means, “to save from danger.” Rescue missions are never free. Easter is no exception. It cost God His Son.
