Rescue seems imminent for the 33 miners who have been trapped in a Chilean mine for over 2 months. A drill has just broken through to the chamber where they have been trapped, and the men should be brought safely to the surface soon. The whole nation of Chile is jubilant over the progress that has been made in the rescue effort.
Because the rescue of the men was so critical, more than one plan was put into place to save them. 3 different drills were employed to try to reach the men. “Plan A”, “Plan B” and “Plan C” were all put into effect, just in case the first efforts were not successful.
God has a plan to save mankind. All people become helplessly trapped in sin, with no way of rescuing themselves. But God loves the world so much that he sent his son Jesus to die for us so that we wouldn’t have to perish, but could enjoy everlasting life.
God has so much confidence in the power of the gospel that he has no backup plan for our salvation. Jesus says, “…I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).
I predict that all 33 of the trapped miners will accept the rescue option that is offered to them. It’s too bad that a higher percentage of people don’t accept the rescue plan that God offers them through Jesus.
