There are many many things to take away from the story does want to point out three year to close the program. First of all, this is a horrible tragedy.

Kids.

Children lost their fathers and their and their mothers. Colby had three other kids there was a mother, the coach of the team was on the flight. None of her kids. Her husband want her husband was quoted saying the hardest thing for me and how is just how I do this I would go forward without my children's mother, you can just imagine Neil what what that would be like mothers lost their children in this thing.

Nine people unexpectedly died. The families of those who are dealing with this complete grief and shock in their life need to be prayed for the needy mean to be prayed for, that they would would come to understand who God is and that death happens to all of us and that there is an urgency. There is a call there's a command to be to get right with God before that happens never to thing to take away is we don't know you don't know when you are going to die, but you will you will die and I will die at some point that that is it is appointed on man once to die.

The Bible says in the Bible says that you will either go to heaven or hell. There is the binary system that Aaron Rodgers was talking about. You go there. One of those two places based on how you answer one question. Did you receive or did you reject the person and work of Jesus Christ on your behalf other words, you pay. Put your faith in what Jesus did for you on the cross that he pay the penalty. You deserve to pay for your sin, you trusting only in holy and that nothing of your own to be right with God in his work, not your own works or have you rejected that and said no. I have another breve a spiritual path is Aaron Rodgers was saying that opening interview of the day that's that's the fact were all going to die, organist, and before God in judgment. The Bible says organ be sentenced to heaven or hell.

We live in a pay the penalty for our own sins, for us or what have faith that Jesus paid them for us in our behalf. That's really the bottom line here so set that Kobe Bryant died age 40 were all gonna die roll role in the process of dying.

Right now we just don't know when the last thing is this death is the great equalizer. You know the rich and the famous like Kobe Bryant and the unknown of those other people who were on the helicopter they take nothing to the grave. Bryant's multimillions of dollars in fame could do nothing him nothing to keep him from dying at the time that he didn't expect another word you can amass all this fame and fortune alive, but you just die like everyone else, and what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but loose his soul. What will a man give in exchange for his soul.

Jesus asked the question. The answer is there's nothing there's nothing you can do or gain or doesn't profit you anything to gain the whole world. If you lose your soul out and I don't know what Kobe Bryant what his beliefs were never met the man of the know what his heart was a day before the crash. Whether he had come to saving faith. The last day of his lot.

I do not know but the. The call is for the rest of this who are still living were still breathing who still have this opportunity to get right with God to do it now to the why question when there were some tragedies in Israel, just like this was a tragedy, Jesus was asked basically the question why did God allow this. And Jesus said to them, do you suppose that these Galileans who all died were greater seat sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffer this fate, fate I tell you no, but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. His answer is all gonna die. We don't know when the call is to repent and believe in the gospel
