We all need to be rescued. Sometimes from a "fire" of our own making. However, there is One who stands ready to rescue you for anything you have done, said, or continue to carry around with you on a daily basis thinking you can never be forgiven.
Firefighters go into fires, not of their making, to rescue those trapped in raging flames of seemingly impossible situations. He/she does this because they want to aid the person with no means of deliverance and they have the expertise to extract and save the one in desperation. Firefighters don't long for fame or recognition nor do they wait one minute to map out beforehand what will be their reward. They are in the business of rescuing the perishing.
The Bible teaches us "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God"...."There is none righteous, no not one." And "for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, His Son." Whatever has caused you to feel as though your situation is dire and it's as if the walls are closing in without a rescue in sight, look to Jesus. He is the ultimate Rescuer and longs to bring you out of your raging fiery furnace into the fresh breath of life and redemption!
Father God, bring those in need of Jesus to the foot of the Cross....Amen!
