Bottom line? You might have cause in this sinful world to slip into a swamp and breath through a straw while dogs hunt you down. But even if they find you and slaughter you, you are safe for all eternity because of what Christ has accomplished on your behalf. Nothing can come between you and him. Not as long as you are trusting and relying upon him for your salvation; for your perfection; for your forgiveness. Any ol’ school bus can come along and take you then, because you’ll be ready.
