Our Helper

Steven Laman

READ : Hebrews 13:1-8

In most areas of my life, I need a helper. From the littlest details like shaving and brushing my teeth to making a phone call to a friend, I need help to survive from day to day.

My mom is almost always my helper. She is always willing to help me with whatever I need. I have other helpers as well. When my youth group goes on a retreat, someone is always willing to help me so I can go. I have a helper at school who takes notes for me in class. My dad and my brother drive me to where I need to go. No matter who helps me, they usually do it cheerfully.

How does God help His children as it says in Hebrews? He helps us in a myriad of ways. When we don’t know how to pray, He sends the Holy Spirit to help us. He provides us with a Savior who saves us from our sins. He gives us rain and sun so we can eat and drink, and the list goes on and on.

It takes a lot of time, energy, and sacrifice to help me. My mom and other people are willing to help me because they love me. Jesus loves us so much, He was willing to sacrifice His own life by going to the cross so we can live forever. I couldn’t survive without the help of other people. Without Jesus’ help, we couldn’t have a very good life here on earth, and we surely couldn’t live forever in heaven.

PRAYER

Lord, thank You for helping us in so many ways. Thank You for sending Your Son to help us get to heaven. In Christ. Amen.
