Key Words: How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation

Mel Fisher had a great 64th birthday. A treasure hunter, Fisher owned Treasure Salvoras, Inc. and had been looking for the Spanish galleon (Neustra Senora de Atocha) for 17 years. The ship, loaded with precious cargo, sank in 1622 during a hurricane. It was on its maiden voyage from Havana to Spain. On a July day just before his 64th birthday, Fisher discovered the ship and its treasure about 40 miles west of Key West, Florida. Imagine his joy that day as his divers brought up from the deep an estimated 150 pounds of gold, including 76 gold bars, gold chains, and gold disks! In addition to this find, more than 900 silver bars and 100 gold bars have been recovered. It is estimated that the ship’s fortune may contain a treasure worth more than $340 million. Finding a treasure like that is mind-boggling! What red-blooded American has not dreamed of doing the same thing? If he could find a treasure like that, he could make a down payment on his debts and pay the rest off in monthly installments! But there is a greater treasure waiting to be found. It’s neither silver nor gold, and it isn’t kept in a bank vault. It doesn’t need to be protected from thieves who would come at night and steal it away. It is free and everyone can have it. Multiplied millions of people have found this treasure and claimed it for themselves, but its wealth has not been depleted one iota. There is as much of it today as there ever has been, and everybody can have it.

God offers you His great salvation today that only comes through Jesus Christ. The choice is yours; but remember, to walk away from salvation is to walk away from the greatest treasure of all time.

What to do:
✞ Accept the Lord’s great salvation.
