On the night of the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic, the silence of the supposedly peaceful night was broken by the inaudible morse code distress S.O.S call, as the luxury liner struck an iceberg and sunk to a watery grave. The signal was three dots, three dashes and three dots (‘ ‘ ‘ – – – ‘ ‘ ‘), which translated to S.O.S. One of the meanings of S.O.S interestingly is Save Our Souls (the other being Save Our Ship). But did you wonder why someone would cry Save Our Souls when it is their physical being (bodies) that needed saving. Many perished that night as the band on the ship sang the song of assurance “Nearer My God to Thee” and sacrificed themselves.
The world today is crying out with inaudible signals, Save Our Souls (S.O.S) and there is only one who can do so. His name is Jesus Christ. Not only can He save us from physical danger and death, but when one believes in Him, his/her soul is saved from spiritual death and eternal damnation. Are we expressing with an abnegating life that “Nearer to our God we are” when we believe in Jesus Christ. All who don’t believe in Him will be engulfed by the grave. The only way to S.O.S is to believe in Jesus Christ.
Matthew 10:28 (KJV)
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
John 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
