|On a cold January morning in 2009, a US Airways flight took off from New York’s LaGuardia Airport. The routine flight boarded normally, the passengers and crew having no idea of the drama getting ready to unfold. Just minutes after take off, however, the airbus hit a flock of geese, causing both engines to shut down.
In the seconds that followed, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger had to make a series of lightning fast decisions that would determine the fate of everyone on board that aircraft. With skill, leadership, and wisdom, Captain Sully successfully landed the airbus on the Hudson River. No lives were lost.
To be “Captain” means to be the chief, the head, the one in charge. When that plane went down, Sully was in charge of handling the crisis and tasked with the responsibility of saving the lives of those on board. Thinking about Sully and the US Airways flight, we can easily understand when it comes to salvation of any sort, we want a fully capable Captain!
Scripture tells us we have one.
In Hebrews 2:10, Jesus is called the Captain of our Salvation.
Jesus is the author and source, the one tasked with accomplishing our redemption and taking care of business… and He has. Our Captain is fully capable, fully competent, fully proven, and fully willing. He has successfully navigated our salvation and will safely deliver us home.
Praise the Lord!
