Deliverance From Harm

When I was only 3 or 4 years old I can remember falling off an inner tube (float) in the Tennessee River.  I didn’t know how to swim or kick to get to the top.  I remember seeing the sunrays through the water that was muddy from below.  Don’t really remember how long I was under, but then all of the sudden my sister’s arm pulled me from the water.  Without her pulling me from the water I would have drowned and died.  As I lay in bed this morning I remembered this happening to me when I was young.   Then I think of the story how Jesus pulled Peter from the water when he was sinking.  Read the story below:
Matthew 14:25-31- And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

I remember being pulled out of the muddy River and it amazes me still.  This River could have had a current that floated me down the river where I wouldn’t have been found.  Somehow I was in the same spot that I fell from, so that my sister was able to pull me from the water.  I was saved from the water that day.  Just like Peter was saved from the water.  What joy it was to be pulled from the water.  What joy a person can have when Jesus rescues us from a life of sin.  He can save us from drowning in our sins.  He is able to deliver us when no one else can.  Our families can’t pull us from the depths of sin.  Only Jesus can.  For there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

noun: salvation
  1. preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss.
  2. deliverance from sin and its consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Christ.

Acts 4:10-12-Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

If you want to receive Salvation, it is free to all those that ask Jesus for it.  First Repent from your sins; or turn from them and ask forgiveness.  Second, ask Jesus to save you from your sins.  Last of all, serve Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior by praying, attending church and telling others about his salvation.
