Unless You Repent

(Luke 13:1-5) There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
Death is a universal reality. We are all in jeopardy. The sudden death of others is a wake-up call for us. We need to "repent" - to get right with God through Jesus Christ.

I am praying for the many people who were injured, bereaved, or otherwise affected by the earthquake in Haiti. I am praying for the relief workers who are going to help.

I am praying for everyone, everywhere who has not yet to come to grips with the reality of his or her own mortality. Maybe these events will make them see the truth.
