Climb aboard the Sunlight Express! Our journey is about to begin, and what a journey it will be! There is no greater adventure than the voyage that is taking place between Jesus and me. The same personal adventure is awaiting you, as well. Your ticket has been purchased and excitement awaits around each bend.
We will examine five wonderful promises this week beginning with an observation at the Great Gorge. It is deep and wide, but there is a strong unfailing bridge that is able to deliver us safely to the other side. Here, we will focus on the promise of salvation through our Savior, Jesus Christ. From the gorge, we will move to the tranquility of Mercy Meadows. It is a peaceful place where sheep are lead by their loving shepherd, much like Jesus lovingly leads us. The third setting is full of adventure. We will experience the rushing and crashing Fearless Falls where we will be reminded of the promise that Jesus cares. Beyond the falls, the Timeless Tunnel awaits. This will be a great time for us to remember that Jesus is as much alive today as He was before His crucifixion, and He will be alive forevermore. We will end our adventure on the beautiful mountaintop of Sonrise Summit where we will look forward to the promise that Jesus will come again.
The Sunlight Express promises to be an unforgettable, hope-filled adventure made possible by the love of Christ. Jesus’ love for us makes it all possible, from the provision of salvation to the promise of His return. We will never know a greater love than the love of Jesus or experience a greater adventure than our own personal journey with Him.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” John 15:13
