How many of you like to go to the beach?

Well, this weekend my family went down to the beach. And whenever David went into the water he had to wear this.

What’s this? That’s right, it’s a life vest.

What is a life vest used for?

Do you think you are safe when you wear one of these?

This life vest is no good to David unless he puts it on.

If David goes into the ocean water without this life vest on he’s most likely going to drown, because he can’t swim.

Can you swim?

All it takes is one wave or for that water to pull him under and David would be gone. That’s very scary.

But you know what? Jesus is like a life vest. He’s there to protect us and rescue us from trouble.

But like a life vest we have to trust Jesus.

Just like we have to put on and keep on our life vest to keep us safe, we have to put our trust in Jesus and keep it there so we can be safe.

Remember whatever Jesus says in the Bible believe it’s the truth.

And always remember you can trust in Jesus.

He always loves you and He always wants what is best for you.
