Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: October 17, 2016

An Air Force pilot told me of the day he forgot to secure himself into the seat of his high-powered jet.  He completed every other preliminary act.  He satisfied his checklist from beginning to end.  Yet he forgot to buckle his seat belt.  His jet was configured in such a way that once the plane was airborne, the belt could not be secured.  Ejection from the plane meant separation from his seat, and separation from his seat meant separation from his parachute and a face-plant at 120 mph.  That’ll suck the joy out of the journey.  Can you imagine flying a jet without a parachute?

Many do.  Eternal insecurity extracts joy from many people.  Only Christ guarantees a safe landing.
