Miracle Rescue of Trapped Chilean Miners






After the collapse of a Chilean mine in August 5, 2010, 33 miners who were initially thought were dead astounded the whole world when a message was sent to the outside world that all 33 of them were still alive. But they were still trapped in a 2,041 feet shaft below the surface as 700,000 tons of rocks collapsed on them. The whole world watched as the best mining experts of the world drilled a bigger hole in the mine to fit a capsule that could load a single miner at a time. After two agonizing months of drilling, the breakthrough occurred and the miners were saved one by one. This is the single biggest and longest saving operation of trapped miners in the history of mining in the world. They emerged one by one from the rescue capsule to the thunderous applauses of well wishers and the whole world. YES, MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN IN THIS DAY AND AGE. AND YES, GOD ANSWERS OUR PRAYERS.

Grace (How Truly Amazing It Really Is)

  GRACE (How Truly Amazing It Really Is)
Grace is undeserved merit given to an unworthy recipient by a magnanimous giver. Sounds crazy isn't it? In this age and culture, we know that there is no such thing as free meal. You have to work, even fight for it. But that's grace. On our own, we are incapable of saving ourselves no matter what we do. Ephesians 2: 8-9 says, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast."

The human race was born under a curse, under a state of depravity, unable to rise above his own brutish nature without external help. This was the result of man's fall at Eden where he lost the image and likeness of God from which he was originally created. That is why, we have a natural tendency to sin, to rebel and to do evil. It is always a struggle for us to be good, to be pious and not to sin. The scene of the fall of man at Eden is replicated in every man, as he is always faced with a choice to sin or not to sin.

The only solution to escape this vicious cycle of sinning and falling deeper and deeper into the quagmire of wanton living and total wretchedness is to
accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We must confess our sins to Him and let His most precious blood cleanse all the sins we accumulated in our entire lifetime. We must also surrender our lives to Him and be determined not to sin again. If our prayer of acceptance is sincere, the Holy Spirit will overshadow us and will give life to our dead spirit, and we will be born again in Spirit and in truth. Then we shall inherit eternal life. John 3: 3 says, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."

The choice is ours, whether we remain spiritually dead or attain eternal life. Romans 6: 23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." The deepest meaning of amazing grace and the only formula for salvation are contained in John 3: 16. It says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
"Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind but now
I see." *

How truly amazing, God's grace is.
