Message in a Bottle

March 9, 2018 · Print This Article

Perhaps you heard this week that the oldest recovered message in a bottle has been found in Western Australia. The message was thrown into the sea in 1886 by a German ship as part of an experiment into ocean and shipping routes. The Illman family who found the bottle have expressed their amazement and wonder at finding the bottle lodged in the sand.

For some, the Bible is just an historical document, the writings of a particular time and a particular place. To others, the Bible is like a message in a bottle, a personal note that survives the vagaries of the tides of time to bring amazement and wonder to those who read it. It tells the story of Jesus Christ and his ‘eternal message’, encouraging us to ‘worship the Maker of Heaven and earth, salt sea and fresh water!’ (Rev 14:6-7 MSG)

Open the Bible and see what has been kept for you within.
