Lifeguard on Duty

lifeguardA recent “Dennis the Menace” cartoon pictured Dennis at the beach. Our mischievous little friend, curious as usual, had a question for the lifeguard, who was perched high in his chair, in the shade of an umbrella. Dennis wanted to know, “How can you save anybody from up there?”

Of course, in order to save somebody, a lifeguard has to leave his sitting position and come down to where the person in trouble is struggling. He has to abandon his shady spot and get out there where the danger is.

In the same way, if we Christians are to save anyone, we have to come down from our lofty perch and reach out to someone who is struggling in the dangerous waves of sin. We have to reach out to them and lead them to Jesus.

Staying under the umbrella is not an option!
