The waves slapped his face. He could taste the salt water. And his eyes opened for the last time. The lifejacket was still there. He could still grab it.
“I can do this myself.” his mind screamed!
And then he went under for the last time.
Are we this way with our sin? Jesus we don’t need you. Get behind me and I’ll do this myself. I can and will save myself.
And just like the drowning man who can save himself, we will drown in our sin.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. ~ John 3:16-17
