Tragedy and Disaster

Once again we have become aware of another mining disaster. After the Chilean trapped miners were released we all breathed a sigh of relief. Thirty three men successfully brought to safety!What a glorious day it was for all involved and how we as fellow human beings were relieved to see a potentially sad story become a happy one. We trust that this will be the case for the twenty nine miners trapped in the Pike River Coal Mine in Atarau, New Zealand.

It is the desire of our creator, the Almighty God, that the sad story of human life and death be turned into a happy one. The miners in Chile soon learned the need for God and His presence when confined under ground. Among the scarce necessities that were delivered to them while in isolation was a personal copy of the bible. When faced with death, God and His truth is the only answer.

As I close listen to the truth that God brings to us in His word.

God commends his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

God is not willing that any should perish (as in eternal damnation) but that all should come to repentance (a change of mind regarding sin and God accepting his offer of forgiveness).

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

My advice would be to take advantage of the offer of salvation today.
