When I go to the pool I don’t ask the lifeguard to be my personal savior if he sees me drowning he saves me that’s what he does. Jesus is the savior of the world my faith does not create his forgiveness, it accepts it.
I used to be on the swim team when I was younger. I was pretty good at it if I do say so myself. During my tenure on the team, we went through an abbreviated lifeguard training class. It was hard but I loved it. They taught us the first rule of lifeguarding.
Don’t drown with a drowning victim. Save yourself first.
