Ocean’s Depths

Did you know that I love to watch dolphins jump and frolic in the water? To me, they are such majestic creatures.

I am always scanning the waters in hopes of seeing dolphins jumping or maybe a whale. Did you know the blue whale is the largest animal ever to have lived on earth? It is even larger than the largest dinosaur. Female blue whales can grow to be 100 feet long and weigh 130 tons. Their heart is the size of a small car and can pump 10 tons of blood throughout the body.

I can remember on one cruise, I was sitting on the balcony scanning the ocean for activity, any activity, and I started thinking about what was under the water. I know that there are living creatures living in secret under the water. I’ve seen enough of Discovery Channel to know the oceans hold a lot of secrets, the many ship wrecks carrying their treasures, the varied marine life, some never seen because they live in the deepest and darkest parts of the water. The deepest part of the ocean known so far is 7 miles deep, can you imagine? Did you know that the deepest ocean is deeper than the tallest mountain? Wow!!!!

Christ Jesus came to seek and save the lost. If we have been saved, trusted Jesus as our Savior, we have experienced His mercy, not deserving it but Christ Jesus extended His mercy to us all. Did you know that even after we are saved Satan is still walking the earth back and forth seeking whom he may devour? Did you know that Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father and listens to the ramblings of Satan when he brings each person before the throne of God? When Satan presents someone to God, Jesus says; “No Abba Father, that one is mine. He/she is a child of God. He/she is not condemned. He/she has been forgiven, I bought him/her with My blood.” Did you know that your sins have been forgiven, if you ask Jesus for forgiveness? He will forgive you of all your sins. Your sins were paid for by the blood of Jesus on the cross once and for all. All sins, no sins are exempt, nothing too big or too small. You only have to confess your sins and accept His forgiveness.

Did you know the Word of God says that as far as the east is from the west, this is as far as He has removed our sins from us? Did you know the Word of God says that He will remember our sins no more? Did you know that the Word of God says that our sins are behind His back and did you know God does not look back? Did you know that the Word of God says He will again have compassion on us; He will tread our sins underfoot. Yes, God will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea? The depths of the sea, at least 7 miles down and all that pressure and weight on top of them never to be seen again, never, never, never.
