Some have called Michael Phelps the greatest Olympian in history – I’m not here to debate that. This week he obtained what no other swimmer or Olympian has ever achieved by winning eight gold medals and in the process setting seven new world records. It was a truly an amazing achievement.
Although Michael is a phenomenal swimmer it still doesn’t cancel his need for a lifeguard to be posted poolside in case an accident occurs. This same principle applies to our life as well. We may be good “swimmers” – we know how to do life, we are good people, we do more good than bad and we try live right but it doesn’t cancel our need for a lifeguard. The Bible says that our good deeds aren’t enough to save us and bring eternal life. Eternal life only comes through Jesus Christ – the TRUE LIFEGUARD.
