Chilean Miners Rescued
Along with millions of people, I rejoice at the rescue of the 33 Chilean miners and I thank God for their rescue.
Think of the ways in which their experience is a picture of what happens to true Christians:
They were in a situation where they were under sentence of death with absolutely no way to rescue themselves. They've now been brought from death to life, from darkness to light, from isolation to fellowship, from grief to joy. All of this was done by means of someone coming down to them from above, to live among them and to rescue them, under the authority of the ruler of the nation above them.
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son...(Colossians 1:13 ESV).
Spiritually, are you still in the mine? Or have you been brought out into the light?
