This story leads me to consider a spiritual lesson. We all must die and then face judgment. We may escape death numerous times. But eventually death will get a hold on us. Every time we have a close brush with death, we should consider our souls. Are we ready to die? How can we be ready? Every single human is a guilty sinner. We have broken all of God's law in some form. On our own we have no hope of eternal life. God is holy and just and cannot let us go free. Our crimes must be punished. But there is hope. For God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus to come to earth as a man, to live a perfect life and to die on a cross to pay the debts that sinners owe to God. If we repent of our sins and trust Jesus Christ for forgiveness and righteousness, we will be forgiven and be given eternal life. All that come to God for grace and mercy through Jesus, He will receive with open arms. This is good news for unworthy sinners like us.
