I can’t imagine being under the ground not knowing if I would ever see the light a day. I can’t imagine having that sense of despair for a minute. I definitely can’t imagine having that feeling for more than fifty days. But if you have followed the news lately you know that 33 miners dealt with this very fact.
As I watched and read the coverage I couldn’t help but see the reaction of the people. The families, the miners, and the world seemed to all have the same basic feelings. These feelings were of immense joy. These men, just a few weeks earlier, had no clue if they would ever see friends and family again. When they did finally “escape” the terror, the only reaction was joy.
This got me thinking of Christians. We have “escaped” the corruption of the world (1 Peter 1:4). We were rescued by God from the darkness of the world. Our reaction should be the same, we should be overjoyed. We should have a joy that is indescribable. God has rescued us! We had no hope! The angels rejoiced! God rejoiced! Now lets rejoice in our salvation!
We thank you for giving us the means to escape. We cannot express the gratitude we have.
Through Your Son,
