Saved by a Cell Phone March 30, 2016

If it had not been for his cell phone, Jonathan Hambler would probably not have survived. On a frigid night, he had jumped aboard a freight train to get across town a little quicker than walking, thinking when the train slowed down, he would jump to safety. Instead, it increased its speed. Fortunately, his wild ride ended fairly happily, because he used his cell phone to call 911 and was rescued. Hambler’s story reminds one of so many, who hop on the wrong train along life’s highway. They get into drugs, alcohol and their unholy relatives, only to find themselves trapped and unable to get off. In Jonathan’s case, his cell phone was the instrument that saved him. And when you and I find ourselves on life’s train, going in the wrong direction too quickly, we too can have a direct line to our Maker. He has promised, “Call upon me and I will answer you.” And Jesus promised, “the one who comes to me, I will by no means cast out.”
