An Infallible Security System

 
One of man's deepest needs is to feel safe. Is that an
impossible quest?

Just when we thought it was safe to fly, a breach of
security occurred. The intrusion took place at Newark's
Liberty International Airport, one of the nation's
busiest. Cameras recorded a man ducking under a rope as
the security officer stepped away from his post. One of
the terminals was shut down for six hours as a search
for the intruder came up empty. Air traffic around the
nation was affected.

We're likely looking at a case of someone who didn't
want to wait in line to be cleared for boarding. No one
will deny that security measures at the airports are a
hassle. Most of us, though, are glad to go through the
process if it means flying without fear of sitting
beside a terrorist.

This incident in Newark, coupled with an armed
passenger apprehended in midair on Christmas day, has
shaken us up again.

Security has a price. To protect our homes from
burglars or our vehicles from thieves we often pay high
monthly premiums. Keeping citizens secure from those
convicted of violent crimes requires solid prisons
surrounded by rows of concertina wire. Even these
measures are fallible. Guarded homes are broken into
and prisons occasionally experience jailbreaks.

Guarding our most valuable possession is God's job.
What is that possession? Jesus tells us: "For what
profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and
loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange
for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26). No material object you
possess comes close to the value of your soul. Do you
feel secure about that soul?

Can security for the soul be found? Hear Jesus again:

   "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them,
   and they follow me. And I give them eternal
   life, and they shall never perish; neither
   shall anyone snatch them out of my hand. My
   father, who has given them to me, is greater
   than all; and no one is able to snatch them
   out of my father's hand" (John 10:27-29).

There is one who stalks us to rob us of our eternal
destiny, Jesus warned (John 10:10). But Satan is no
match for God when we entrust our souls to him.

That claim in confirmed in James 4:7: "Therefore
submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from
you."

Sadly, many do not resist the devil. In effect they're
handing Satan the key to their heart. Before long he'll
move in and destroy (see John 13:27).

You and I can do better. Knowing what a tragedy it
would be to lose our souls, let us draw near to God. In
doing so we'll be entering a security zone that no
power can ever breach.
