The Titanic tragedy has captured our minds and hearts. How much do you know about it?
1. How many people were on the Titanic? (2224)
2. What did it cost to build the Titanic? ($7,500,000)
3. Where was the Titanic built? (Belfast, Ireland)
4. Who was its captain? (Captain Edward Smith)
5. How long did it take to sink? (Less than three hours)
6. How long did the bridge have to react after they saw the iceberg? (37 seconds)
7. What was the name of the rescue ship? (Carpathia)
Isn’t amazing that we care so much about a past tragedy and so little about a common every day one?
Every day, people die and go to hell. Thankfully God is patient.
2 Peter 3:9-The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
However, he is also very clear.
Luke 13:5-I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
John 3:14-16-And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish buthave eternal life.For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (NKJV).
Prayer: Lord, give us sense to make a decision today and then share what we’ve learned with our neighbors and friends. For Christ’s sake. Amen.
