Rescue the Perishing

Dwight L. Moody recalled seeing a painting at a Chicago art gallery that he felt was the most beautiful painting he had ever seen. Entitled “Rock of Ages,” it depicted a person clinging with both hands to a cross on a rock in a stormy sea. Later, he saw a similar painting, but this one featured a person clinging to the cross with one hand and reaching down with the other to rescue someone from the churning sea. Moody commented that the second painting surpassed the beauty and significance of the first. Nothing in all of life surpasses the beauty, significance, and joy of rescuing someone who is perishing.

“He who wins souls is wise” (Prov. 11:30).
