Do you trust the Captain?


“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.”   
–Acts 16:31

Spurgeon tells of a story that took place during a severe storm at sea…

…it seemed that the ship could last but little longer, and that the precious cargo of human life would soon find their graves in the raging billows. The waves were already coming over the deck, and passengers were rushing hither and thither, wringing their hands and weeping, each one expecting every moment to be their last. In their midst sat a young man, who unconcernedly watched the mad waves as they dashed against the vessel. Some of the passengers asked him how he could be so calm in such an hour, when his life hung by a very slender cord; he replied, “I feel no fear whatever; why should I? My father is commanding the ship, and he knows what he is doing. I trust him –he will bring us through safely.”

Fellow-traveler, when danger, trouble, disaster, and reverses overtake you, will you trust the Lord Jesus to see you through? He is the captain who has never lost a soul who trusted in him. “…the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.”  –John 6:37
