May 15 – Trustworthy Captain

tfh sunrise
Historically and traditionally, the captain is the last person off a sinking ship . But last month, Captain Lee Joon Seuk, in command of a South Korean ferry that flipped over and sank, was one of the first ones off, as he abandoned the ship early. Hundreds of young students lost their lives. And in January of 2012, Captain Francesco Shettino, in command of the Costa Concordia when it sank off the coast of Tuscany, abandoned ship early. 32 people were killed. But there is one Captain who never abandons His people. It is Jesus our wonderful Saviour. The writer of Hebrews speaking of those who have acknowledge their sin and invited Christ into their lives, calls Jesus the “captain of their salvation.” And says of that Captain, “He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” If you are sinking and hopeless, I urge you to allow Christ to become the captain of your life.
