Life is so fragile

My mom just called me. She and my dad were driving to visit my grandparents when they witnessed a car explode in a field off the side of the freeway. By the time my dad could get down to the car, the field surrounding the car was also on fire. He could not get close enough to help the driver who was trapped in the car.


Pray that God brings comfort to the grieving family of the driver who perished. Pray that the driver was a follower of Christ and that many will be saved through this tragedy. And pray that God constantly remind each of us how precious life is. It is a fleeting vapor. We are as the lilies of the field which are here today and gone tomorrow. Without Christ, we, too, would perish in the flames of hell for all eternity. Pray for boldness to share the gospel with those who do not know Christ. It is urgent! The season of life is short and once "the grass withers and the flower fades" we will not have a second chance to preach the gospel.
