Once again, the fragility of life has made a major impact on our
nation.

I am reminded of God's Word in James 4:14

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your
life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then
vanisheth away.

We saw this on Sept 11. We have seen it once again in the sky over
Texas. I stop at this moment, remembering when I got a phone call
many years ago that dropped the bottom out of my world, that my
brother was killed in car accident. Oh I was second guessing. Those
what ifs. What if I had called that fateful morning. What if I had
gone out there then maybe he would not have been in that car.

What if we had only known? What IF? WHAT IF?

I have heard too many people tell me they will trust Christ when they
are older. When they have had their fun. But what if they do not have
another year...another week or even another hour? What if?

My friend, I hate death with a passion. Oh not for those who KNOW our
LORD...but for those who do not. You see, MY death would be my friend.
For me to die, would be to instantly be with my Savior...My LORD.

Seven precious people flying over the sky of Texas suddenly found
themselves in another place. They left this world together. They will
face their maker one at a time. Alone. Well, I pray not alone for I
pray that they each have placed their trust in Jesus so HE would be
there with them...to be their advocate. For those that did trust
Christ, they are with HIM right now. For those who did not...there
can be no greater tragedy.

Our precious crew of the Columbia are being praised as heroes. And
that they are...but what difference does it make now be they heroes
IF JESUS was not their hero? If HE was not their savour?

Matthew 16:26 tells us "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain
the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul?"

I have seen the news clips of these precious people boarding the
Columbia. There could not have been a happier group of people. Many
were filling life long dreams. But did they even dream that they
would not return to earth? to NASA...to their loved ones?

My friend, NONE of us are promised a tomorrow. We are not even
promised another hour. Look at James 4:14 again.

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your
life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then
vanisheth away.

I have walked through the cemetery. I have read the obituary and I
have seen the fleeting evidence of life. From those that died at
birth, to those over 100 year old. Most did not expect to die. We are
all one heart beat away from eternity.

LIFE is not a rehearsal We will have no second chance.


Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after
this the judgment:

If you are not sure that YOU can pass this judgment, please make sure
today.

Once we have trusted Jesus Christ for full payment for our sin, then
can we say:


1 Corinthians 15
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.




DEATH...where is your sting?

If you know you are saved. that You have eternal life. let me ask
you ... what about your friends? Your neighbors? Your co-workers?

Will death have a sting for them?

My Friend

BY Vera Lynn Edge

One day a girl named Louise fell asleep and dreamed a strange dream.
she dreamed that a gal in Hell wrote her a letter and sent it to her
by an angel-its a true story - if you can read it without weeping
then......


The Letter

My friend I stand in judgment now.
And feel that you are to blame somehow.
On earth, I walked with you day by day,
And you never did point the way.

You knew the Lord in truth and glory.
But never did you tell the story.
My knowledge then was very dim.
You could have led me safe to him.

Though we lived together on earth.
you never told me of the sacred birth,
and now I stand this day condemned, because you failed to mention him.

You taught me many things that's true,
I called you friend and trusted you.
but I learn now that its too late.
you could have kept me from this fate.

We walked by day and talked by night.
And yet you showed me not the light.
you let me live and love and die.

But you knew I would never live on high.
Yet I called you friend in life.
And trusted you through joy and strife.
and yet on coming to the end.
I cannot, now , call you "My Friend".

-Marsha

After Louise awoke from that dream and it was still real in her mind,
She contemplated the meaning of the dream. And thought that she had
not done all that she could to tell her friends about Jesus. She said
to herself that she would make a point to tell her friend Marsha
about the dream some time soon!! The next day She called her friend
Marsha and this was the conversation "Bill is Marsha
there?? "Louise , you don't know yet!!!". "No, Bill what". "MARSHA
WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT IN A CAR ACCIDENT"!" I thought you knew"


What are you doing to tell others of the Love of Christ!!

MY LORD...Give us a burden as never before to tell the lost about YOU!

For the LAMB
Ken
