A young law school student was on his way to class on a cold, blustery day
in January. As he was walking to class, he watched a young boy ice
skating on a pond.
To his amazement, the ice broke and the boy was drowning before his eyes.
Without hesitating, the young law student ran to his rescue. He made his
way with bravery to the edge of the hole and saved the boy from certain
Years went by and the law student became a very successful lawyer and was
eventually promoted to judge. One day, a dirty, long-haired man was
brought before him for committing some serious crimes. Right away the
judge remembered the man as the boy he saved the day at the pond. He

Jesus will be our judge one day as it is written in Romans 14:11-12 "As I
live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall
confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to
God." I encourage you to live for the Lord. Ask Him to guide your steps
and show you all that He wants you to do. God is faithful to hear and
answer your prayers.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him (Psalm 145:18) and is faithful
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness once we confess our sins to the
Lord (1 John 1:8). I encourage you to seek the Lord and ask Him to come
into your heart and life if you have never done so before. God is a
loving God and He loves you. Never let anyone tell you that God doesn't
love you or that you are beyond saving. Jesus loves you and He came to
Earth and died for you. He will welcome you with arms stretched wide once
you call upon Him, just as a father welcomes their child. He will come
into your life and be your Lord, Savior and Friend. Jesus has done it for
millions of others and will do the same for you, because He loves you.
