There are lessons we can learn in life from many sources. Here are a few things I learned about sharing the Gospel with the lost from Water Rescue class. first let us look at what we are taught from the Red Cross and the Boy Scouts about rescuing someone who is drowning.
|Reach: Hold on to the dock or your boat and reach your hand, a boat oar, a fishing pole, or whatever you have nearby to the person in the water|
|Throw: If you can’t reach far enough, toss things that will float for the person to grab.|
|Row: If you’re in a boat, use to oars to move the boat closer to the person in the water or call out to a nearby boat for help. Don’t use the boat’s motor close to a person in the water, they could be injured by the propeller.|
|Don’t Go: Don’t go into the water unless you are trained the way life guards are trained to rescue frightened or injured people. Yell for help.|
|If you call 911, stay calm and give your exact location.|
|Learn first aid: CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) for drowning and how to help someone who has been in cold water and may need treatment for hypothermia.|
Now let us change it slightly for the Christian in the world.
4 rules of Soul Saving
Reach: Hold on to Christ and your church and reach out your hand, your heart, your wallet, or whatever you have been given by God to the person in danger
Throw: If you can’t reach out enough, toss things that may help for the person to grab on to. Godly music, Books, stories.
Grow: If you’re in a church, use it to pray for the person in peril. Call out to nearby brothers and sisters for help. Don’t judge the lost, they could be injured
Go:. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
When you call on God, stay calm and give your cares to Him.
Learn to evangelize: CPR (Christ’s People Reach-Out), for our Gift is to be shared.
May you be used to save a soul this season! May many Blessings from The Most High rain on you and yours!!!!
