Last week Sunday, I was treated to a visit and tour of Palos Verdes Fire Station #106. What a thrill it was to meet these true heroes, who daily lay their lives on the line for all of us. The Captain who gave us this tour had been at many different stations throughout Southern California and held nearly every position a firefighter could hold, including functioning as a liaison to the public.
“We’re like a superhero! Each one of us has their speciality and when we come together, we’re unstoppable!”
Indeed! All of us swelled with pride as we witnessed the teamwork at the station. From daily training paramedical updates, to doing mechanical repairs on their equipment, to maintaining their bodies in peak physical condition; they were like a superhero!
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
The Captain’s words reminded me of the promise of God through His Word. If we place our faith in Jesus Christ and accept Him as our Lord and Savior, He will make us complete so that we have all the resources we will ever need to do His will on this earth.
We salute the brave men and women of our Palos Verdes Fire Station! They are as close to a real life superhero we will ever meet. But God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, has enabled us to be more than conquerors as we live our lives. We, too, can be like a superhero, empowered by faith in our Almighty God.
Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
