What do the Titanic and Salvation have in common? By Rebecca U.

What do the Titanic and Salvation have in common?

By Rebecca U.
      The Titanic was a great ship. Beautiful huge and apparently unsinkable.

Just as the world was before Adam and Eve sinned. After sin there was a problem. Just like the Titanic sank when it hit the iceberg we are sinking in sin. Romans 3:23 says "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Well, that verse can be depressing. We have all sinned and fallen short of God's perfection. And Romans 6:23a says "For the wages of sin is death." If we stop there we
all deserve death, but wait, here is the rest: "but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." The Titanic was sinking but there were the life boats. The people that got in the life boats were later rescued by the Carpathia.

Just like Jesus rescued us from eternal death by dying on the cross. But we have a choice to ask Jesus to save us from sin and go to heaven when we die or we can reject Him and then suffer eternal death (hell) when we die. The people on the Titanic had a choice whether or not to get in the life boats. Many of the people didn't get in the life boats they didn't think the Titanic would sink but it did and so did they but those in the lifeboats survived. Those that stayed on
the Titanic drowned just like we are going to drown in sin if we don't ask Jesus to save us. Jesus is our life boat. The people had a choice to stay on ship and later drown or get into a life boat and be rescued. We also have a choice to be saved from sin and go to heaven or to keep drowning in sin and go to hell. I hope that all of you have made the decision to be rescued from sin but if you haven't follow these steps to be saved.

  A. Admit that you are a sinner
  B. Believe that Jesus is God's Son and that He died for so that you can be saved
  C. Confess your sins to God

If you have done that then you have been saved from your sins and will go to heaven when you die. You are also a child of God. We are all sisters in Christ. If you have any questions about salvation or any thing else about your walk with God then talk to your Pastor or an adult who is a Christian. You can also email/message Hillary, me, or anyone else on this website. We would love to hear from you.

*Editor's Note: We do also recognize that there were not enough life boats aboard the Titanic to sustain everyone on board. Thankfully, God's salvation is offered freely to all, and He doesn't have too few life rafts ;) 2 Timothy 2:3-6 "This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time."
