“O The Blood”
This song has been playing over and over in my car and at work….
Earlier this week our oldest son learned that a young man from the town we used to live in was killed in a tragic auto accident. One that was completely avoidable but because of the carelessness of the other driver, 2 families lives may forever be changed.
It is so sad and so senseless.
It is in times like these that I want to understand the “whys” – want to see something positive in the situation.
And often times there isn’t an answer right away.
Maybe this accident, this loss, will bring some teenagers from the community to Christ.
Maybe it will bring the driver who caused it to a relationship with Christ.
We just can’t know – I can hope because at least there is something positive…
It is at times like this that the best we can do I think is cling to the promises.
This life is NOT the end.
Because of the blood of Christ, shed for us, a young life lost isn’t lost forever.
There is hope and power and grace in the blood.
Can you even comprehend that even in our darkest moments of sin – Christ chose to sacrifice His life for us so that this would not be the end of the story.
Praise God for that.
Please pray for the family of Peter Auch – may God cover them in His peace today.
