Welcome at „For Seafarers“

Dear seafarer,

Your ship is sailing across the ocean.
At the destination port it will anchor for a short time.
You will unload the freight and load up with new cargo. If you are on a passenger ship it is the same, but with passengers.
And you? You usually stay on the ship. In the harbor you are very busy.
Back on the ocean, it’s less stressful again. You have time, a lot of time to think.
About 300 days, then you can be home for two months. Home? Not really. Because soon you will have to get back on ship. And everything starts over again.

Where are you at home? Where will you anchor forever?
Yes, one day we will anchor for the last time. Where will you spend eternity?
In heaven? Are you welcome there? There is God, and God is holy.

Holy God cannot look at sin. He loves us sinners, but sin becomes between us and Him.
Are you and I sinners? Yes, we all have broken God’s commandments. We have stolen, lied and so on. We have broken the Ten Commandments. God must punish us, God must condemn us.

In the Bible, Romains, 3.12 we read:
All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good, not even one.‚ÄĚ

We cannot help ourselves. So is there no hope for us?

But Yes there is Hope! There is a Rescuer
God is holy. But God is also loving.
God has a way to save us.

God became human. He sent his own Son, the Lord Jesus, to earth as a baby. Jesus never sinned. He was perfect and so He was able to die for us. For me and you. In our place Jesus died on the cross. To pay our debt.
Unbelievable love? Yes, what a love! Jesus died for his enemies.

So now God says to us in Romains 3.24:
„For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.“

Wonderful! It sounds so easy. But is hard too. You have to accept that we are sinners.
We have to accept that we cannot help ourselves. This is the only way to be saved.

If you want to be saved, if you want to anchor one day in heaven, go in your cabin, kneel down in front of your bed. Then talk to God. He will hear you. Say to Him, that you are a sinner, tell him your faults. Ask God for forgiveness.
He will forgive you. And more: He will give you a new life.
Tell God, that you will now live with Him, an that He shall be the leader of your life.
And don’t forget to thank God! For your salvation, Jesus Christ had to die on the cross!

And now, you start in a new life. Together with the lord Jesus Christ. Day by day. Until you will anchor in heaven, where you will see your Savior.

Read the Bible. Start in the New Testament. The bible is a very important message from God to us. This book will navigate us through our entire life.
