Rescuers. Over this weekend we have been reminded, very clearly, of the invaluable assistance the Rural Fire Service gives to our communities as a bushfire turned in to Tathra.

Unfortunately there has been property loss but, no loss of life at the moment. Through the efforts of these, volunteer, members of the RFS, warnings were given and people evacuated to safety. When the evacuations were made, then the RFS members got into action to lessen the loss and damage to the township.

These volunteers, in Tathra and lots of other localities around Australia, went about their business, taking as much care as possible, to put out the bushfire, but in doing so they are in dangerous places and situations.

As Easter 2018 draws close, I’m reminded of another rescuer who put himself in danger for everybody everywhere, but at the cost of life. Jesus! The Apostle Paul writes the following of Jesus in his letter to Christians in Philippi in the first century; .. “of his own free will he gave up all he had, and took the nature of a servant. He became like a human being and appeared in human likeness. He was humble and walked the path of obedience all the way to death—his death on the cross. For this reason God raised him to the highest place above and gave him the name that is greater than any other name. And so, in honour of the name of Jesus all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees, and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”       

This Easter let’s take time to thank God for sending Jesus as our
