In the Alpine Museum in Bern, a broken hemp rope reminds us of the tragic death of four men after climbing the Matterhorn for the first time on July 14, 1865. The soles of one’s shoes were too slippery, his experience lacking and the rope didn’t stand up to the forces. The emergency rope broke at the crucial moment.
Our lives are often similar to a first ascent. A lot of unknowns, lack of experience, dangerous situations and deathly abysses. Even an expert bears a risk. Our life is fragile and offers little security. And suddenly it is there, the question about the meaning of life and about God…
You can’t be saved by believing in anyone else. God has given us no other name under heaven that will save us.Acts 4:12
Great, if you know the creator as saviour. It is virtual to trust him during “good times”. He is reliable. His love is unlimited. It can bear any fall.
Scripture of the week: 2 Samuel 22:31-34
