“Put your hope in God for I will yet praise Him, my Saviour and my God” Psa 41 5b.
As a nation we have been reflecting these past few weeks on the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic and the huge loss of lives, surely now our minds should be focused on the uncertainty of life for all of us.
Many people in 1912 believed that the ship was unsinkable and that those travelling on it were safe. Through misplaced faith in their “unsinkable” ship and human error the sad result was that over 1500 people perished, many going to a lost eternity.
One passenger on the ship, John Harper, an Scottish Baptist pastor used the opportunity as the ship began to sink, to urge people to put their hope in Jesus. Some did but many did not listen. Harper died that night in the cold Atlantic waters, witnessing for his Lord.
Our calling in ONE MISSION SOCIETY is to help the world’s peoples understand that Jesus Christ gave his life to save all those who put their hope in Him. Like John Harper we have an urgent message for our world to-day – put your hope in the Lord!
