Seize the Moment – Day 301


Hebrews 2


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Tuesday, January 12.


You have seen in the movies that when a soldier is wounded in battle, one of his buddies cries out, “medic”. What does the medic do, often putting himself in great danger—he goes to the man down to give him aid.


Like a medic on the battlefield, Jesus left his place of safety to enter the battlefield of human life; He came from heaven to earth in order to provide aid to anyone who would call upon His name: Jesus!


Hebrews 2:17-18 is a triumphant declaration of why Jesus Christ came into the world:


Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.


Are you facing temptation in your life and need help? Are you struggling with issues of forgiveness in your relationships? Are you facing a health crisis or financial difficulty?


Cry out to Jesus today and He will come to your aid!

The Gospel is the story of the greatest rescue effort ever made in the history of humanity. Jesus came on a mission—to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10)!


Do you see someone else on the battlefield who is in need of Jesus’ help and rescue?


You have been saved to be a part of the great rescue work of Jesus! You have been blessed to be a blessing! You have been empowered and equipped with the presence of God’s Spirit in you!


Seize the moment and be the hands and feet of Jesus today. Pray for and then practically help someone today!
