No Guarantees

This morning at church Kenny reminded us that we are not guaranteed to see tomorrow. Tonight that truth became a reality for me.

We met Mike this past summer when he worked with Jeremy to replace our roof. Slowly we became friends with him and his wife. Just recently Mike decided he wanted to straighten up his life and start going to church. He decided to try out New Hope because once when he needed $5 for gas he stopped into the office and they gave it to him! So he called up Jeremy and asked if he could pick him up the next Sunday. He's been twice. He was going to go this morning, but slept in too late. I have no doubt in my mind that it was the enemy at work. This evening Mike was killed in a car accident. It doesn't seem real to me yet. I believe he was around 31 years old. Left behind a wife, Mandy, and a one year old son, Michael. Please be in prayer for them. He is also the son of Les Hughes, who goes to New Hope.

There is no guarantee of tomorrow. Don't put off making a decision about Jesus. Don't put off reconciling your relationships. Live today as if it were your last, because you never can be sure when that will be...
