Mayday Mayday Mayday – do you need help?

As we enter into May I was wondering about this term Mayday!

According to Wikipedia

Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications.

It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by aviators and mariners, but in some countries local organizations such as firefighters, police forces, and transportation organizations also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row (“Mayday Mayday Mayday”) to prevent its being mistaken for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call

The Bible warns us that we are in distress (a life-threatening emergency) and need to call out Mayday due to this danger we find ourselves in. In the incident in Matthew ch 14 vs 29-31 when the disciple Peter was walking on the sea to Jesus (because Jesus the Son of God could do these things) Peter takes his eye of the Lord Jesus and starts to sink.

Peter was crying Mayday Mayday Mayday when he said Lord Save Me! He didn’t try to save himself, he didn’t call upon the disciples he cried to Jesus.

Jesus stretched forth his hand and saved him immediately.

Did you realise that you have offended God, the creator of this World in which we live. The Bible states that all have sinned that includes me and you and as a result will face the judgment of God in a coming day. The good news of the Gospel is that God in his love to mankind has provided a way whereby we can cry Mayday – with acknowledgement of our distress and need we can call to God through his Son the Lord Jesus and be saved.

Jesus died on a cross at Calvary but what is important is that God punished his only Son for the wrong things that we have done so if we say we are sorry and ask for our sins to be forgiven we can know God’s Salvation.

This May…. think seriously about the MAYDAY call. Have you made it?
