Sad news, but great news!!!....

As I was listening to the news today, sad news came about James Kim. He and his family were on their way back from a Thanksgiving vacation in Portland to home in San Francisco. ( I think on their way home.) Their car got stuck in the snow. After a few days, James Kim decided to risk his own life and venture out by himself to find help for his wife and two daughters. His family was spotted and rescued, but they could not find James. They have been searching for days, and, unfortunately, earlier today they found his body at the bottom of a canyon.

James Kim went out by himself against what was out there to try to find help for his family. He risked, and unfortunately, lost his own life for them. I am reminded of another person, who against the toughest conditions, not lost, but gave up His own life so that so many more could live. Jesus willingly gave up His own life so that we would not have to die. He offers it as a free gift to all mankind. Open to absoutely anybody. All we need to do is accept it by faith.
Won't you ask Him for that free gift today?? He is waiting, just waiting, for you to respond. It cost Him everything. It is not too late!

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
