Several years ago a newspaper report described the fate if two young men who attempted to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel.  The barrel leaked and they finally washed up on an island in the middle of the Niagara River.  Fortunately they never reached the Falls.  The barrel in which they had trusted had let then down,  If it could not handle the river it certainly would not have withstood the impact of going over the Falls.

We often put our trust in things which let us down.  At times our physical or mental health lets us down.  Many one-time athletes who thought they could conquer the world with their physical strength and ability find themselves limited in later life by weak hearts, lungs and bodies.  Some, who once had brilliant minds, reach a place where the no longer recognize their loved ones when they come to visit.

Jesus came into this world to be the Rock on which we can build our lives and families. He will never let us down.  He promise to remain with us to the end of the age.

Are you trusting Jesus, or are you preparing to go over the Falls in a leaky barrel?
