Lifeboat Series

 The Titanic was a tragedy that never should have happened! 1517 lives lost!!

 All because of PRIDE..it couldn’t sink, they didn’t need all lifeboats….full speed when it hit the iceberg

after several telegrams to go careful of icebergs

 Only 2 boats returned to try and save people

 Some boats weren’t even half full !!!! I bet those people would do things different today..don’t you?

 Who here believes we should reach out and try to pull someone in to the lifeboat??

 Who here thinks it’s ok to just sit in our lifeboat and watch people drown?

 NEVER, NEVER, EVER should we be OK with people dying around us whilst we sit saved in our lifeboat

 This is SERIOUS stuff….it’s Life or Death to people.. 3230 die in Aus weekly

Psalm 2:8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that wins souls is wise.

TRUTH IS

 Most unsaved people don’t think they need saving

 They too think their life is unsinkable..they sit back and enjoy the sin of their life (sin is enjoyable

for a time)

 They think their life is just fine…until life throws in an ICEBERG in the mix

o It might not be until the kids all move out

o But at some point..a life not built on Jesus the ROCK…will come tumbling down

o Sometimes it’s too late for them…hard heart toward God..

James 5:20 you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back will save that person from death and bring

about the forgiveness of many sins.

Luke 15:8-10English Standard Version (ESV) Parable of the lost coin

“Or what woman, having ten silver coins,

the house and seek diligently until she finds it?

friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.’

I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep

[a]

9And when she has found it, she calls together her friends to celebrate!

Like the parable I see the celebration of the coin being found…many coins coming together! All of heaven stops to celebrate when one coin is found over all the other sheep, coins & sons.
