The cross on the wall




Roger was the swimming instructor at a large college for men.


One night, not able to sleep, he decided to go for a swim in the pool.  He thought his would relax him so that he could get to sleep.


“I did not turn on the lights in the pool,” he said, “for I knew every inch of the place, and the roof was made of glass.  The moon was shining brightly as I climbed p the ladder of the high dive.  As I stood there ready to dive, I saw the shadow of my body on the wall at the other end.  It was in the form of across. As I looked at the shadow of the cross, I began to think of the cross of Christ and its meaning, I knew the way of salvation, but had not accepted Christ as my Saviour.


“I cannot say how long I stood on the diving board, or why I did not dive.  I climbed back down from the board and walked along the pool to the steps that I knew led down into the water.  As I descended, I was shocked when, instead of the warm water, my feet touched the cold, dry floor of the pool!  The night before the pool had been drained for repairs. If I had dived, the forty-foot fall to the bottom would have killed me!”


“The cross on the wall saved me that night.  I was so thankful to God for His mercy in sparing my life that I knelt on the bottom of the empty pool and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save my soul.  I experienced a two-fold deliverance that nigh, for the Lord heard me and gave me peace and the joy of knowing that my sins were forgiven, I knew I was saved.”


Roger was not only delivered from physical death, but also from eternal judgment. How is it with you?  Are you on your way to heaven, or to hell?  This may be your last opportunity to be saved.  Make the Lord Jesus your Saviour NOW.  You will have a new life in Christ, you will have peace with God, and you will be able to look forward to spending eternity with Christ.  In spending eternity with Christ, in heaven -  the home of the redeemed.
