A WALK ON AIR
Dt. 33:27/Ps. 139:9-10/Jn. 17:6,15, & 17

The pilot of the single engine plane taxied down the runway. It was a rustic airport in the northern part of Colombia. The plane carried the pilot, a co-pilot, and two large heavy plastic bags. When the plane was at 1500 feet elevation the co-pilot threw out the two plastic bags. These were not bags of marijuana or cocaine. Inside each bag was a man, an ex-employee of one of the drug lords of Colombia. This was a modern way of taking, what in the old days was called "a walk."

In the famous gangster days of Chicago, it was common practice to "take for a walk" someone they wanted to eliminate. Those were the famous "walks" of the decade of the twenties.

Times have changed. The scene is a new one. The methods are different, but the motives are the same. Now they take an individual "for a walk," not to some dark alley of a busy city. Today it's in an airplane, to be thrown out into space to the mercy of death.

What are those motives that never change? They are greed, selfishness, and revenge. Modern civilization and advanced culture, higher education and scientific technology have not been able to better the human heart. Under the cloak of good manners, sporting a well-cut suit, the primitive beast is still raging. It obeys only animal instincts, and takes advantage of everything and everyone to satisfy its selfish greed. Yet this has been a part of the human race for thousands of years.

Isaiah refers to this evil even in the nation of Israel: "Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with guilt, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! Why do you persist in rebellion? From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness—only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with oil." (Isaiah 1:4-6)

Are we, as Christians, inexorably destined to the consequences of man’s sin? No! Read a part of Christ’s prayer to His Father: "I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth." (John 17:6,15, & 17)

Are we safe in Christ’s arms? Yes. A thousand times, Yes. We are safe in Christ’s arms.
