Spring of Life -
Tow Truck of Tow
Today I passed a tow truck
towing a tow truck. My mind immediately filled with terms we
use to honor people. When introducing someone of importance
we often, depending of course upon the persons
occupation, call them a teacher of teachers, preacher of
preachers, man among men and so on.
Well this was a tow truck of
tow trucks and it was a big one. It looked like it could
rescue most any thing. As I thought about that it occurred
to me that what I saw was a rescuer of rescuers, for that it
was a tow truck is; a rescuer from the side of some busy or
abandoned roadway when one breaks down. Most likely all of
us have had to have one at some time or other in our short
Thats what Jesus is.
He is a rescuer of rescuers. For all those courageous people
who daily risk their own safety to save others they also
need Jesus. He is the only one who can rescue any of us from
the sin and death of this world.
Paul speaks of it in Romans
7:24 25 when he wrote, What a wretched man I am!
Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to
God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!
There it is. It matters not
how brave, strong and courageous is any one. He or she
stills ultimately needs Jesus. For the world will eventually
catch us all. It is only a matter of time. But you see Jesus
is beyond time and places us beyond time. When one lives
forever time ceases to an important factor. Just as if I had
an endless supply of money I could purchase anything, so it
is with an endless supply of time we can do, learn and
Jesus is so wonderful for
rescuing us and giving us eternal life it is no wonder that
we call Him by another one of those double names. He is also
King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
