No Safer Place On Earth

Rev. Paul Ibisch



I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28 NIV



The National Night Out was a great success. Neighbors warmly greeted neighbors, and city organizations showed off the newest and finest equipment, staff and procedures for keeping the community safe. Depending on where you live, you might have seen a tazer in action, the latest fire fighting equipment, jaws of life, rescue procedures at the aquatic center, simulated drunk driving demonstrations and so much more. Donated food and prizes made for a very enjoyable night for the whole family. Could you be safer anywhere?



Community efforts are great, but even the best equipment and people can fail. Not everyone made it home safely from the Night Out. In Paterson, New Jersey to seventeen year olds were shot dead while playing basketball. Even going to church has risks in an age when wicked people seek to harm the innocent.



The only safe place on earth is in the hands of Jesus. Jesus sacrificed everything so that believers might have eternal life with God. God has given Jesus authority to overrule sin, Satan and the wicked powers of this world. Nothing in all creation can rob a believer of his place with Jesus in heaven.



Remember to greet your neighbors warmly and know that you are safe even if you didn't see weapon detectors by the entryways. Enjoy the message that assures you are in the Jesus’ hand with sins forgiven. See you in church!
