A few years ago, the newspapers reported the story of how on March 5, 1994, Deputy Sheriff Lloyd Prescott was teaching a class for police officers in the Salt Lake City Library. As he stepped into the hallway, he noticed a gunman herding 18 hostages into the next room.


Thinking quickly, Prescott (dressed in street clothes) joined the group as the nineteenth hostage, followed them into the room, and shut the door. When the gunman announced the order in which hostages would be executed, Prescott identified himself as a cop. In the scuffle that followed, he fatally shot the armed man. The hostages were then released unharmed.


What Prescott did for those hostages is what God has done for us in the person of His Son, Jesus. God dressed Himself in street clothes and entered our world, becoming one of us. Then on the cross, He defeated the one who held us hostage - Satan - and made it possible for us to be free!
