A Fish Out of Water

Recently, our area has had an incredible amount of flooding.  Someone shared the picture above to show the perch that had washed out of his pond and into his pasture.  He said there were hundreds of them and those that were still alive had their heads in small amounts of water in the grass.  When he tried to pick them up to bring them back to the safety of the pond, they fought him with everything in them.  They would try to hide in the grass, they would do their best to squirm out of his hands…basically, they would do anything to avoid being caught.  Without the help of this gentleman, the fish were facing certain death, but still, they did everything in their power to avoid his help.  Sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it?  Many of us are like these fish in the respect that we are facing certain death and yet, fighting ferociously against the One who can save us. God’s Word is clear…apart from Him, we will die and spend eternity in hell, but with Him, we will live with Him forever in heaven.  The choice is ours…accept His help and live or reject His help and die.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:26
