The Story of the Gospel Ship
The message is as old as time itself, a vessel of deliverance from the port of mortality to the shores of eternity. A divine ship empowered by the three mighty masts symbolizing the presence of the Trinity.
The Main Mast representing the personage of the Father, Its sails displaying His position and purpose. He is the Great Creator and Sustainer of the entire universe. He provides all our needs and protects us from all the storms of life, for He is the Almighty God.
The Mast to the right of the Father is His Son, sent to earth born of a virgin to be very God and Man. Born to die on the cross of Calvary for the sins of all the souls in the world. He not only died for our sins but rose victorious over the grave, sin and its penalty. Asking for Forgiveness through our Faith in His mighty work, we are redeemed for all eternity. Some day this very same Son of God will come back for the Rapture of His church and presenting of it blameless before His Father.
The Third Mast representing the Holy Spirit empowering us on our life’s journey beginning immediately upon booking passage and continuing until our arrival at our eternal destination. He fills us with the Love of God, which brings with it Peace and Joy in the midst of seas calm and tumultuous.
We learn to patiently sail along with Goodness in our mission, and humbly submitting to the authority of the ship’s Captain for the entire voyage. It is important for us to understand, the boarding of this Gospel Ship requires, the receiving of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, submitting Soul to His Redemption and Body to His Lordship. Repenting of our own control in life and allowing the Mentoring of the Spirit of God to us, by the Quickening of our Spirit in that act of Salvation.
