Twister Love

Man, this last spring was an awful spring for tornadoes, record-setting in many cases. I mean, again and again, our news coverage was filled with those all-too-familiar images of a city or a neighborhood leveled and the death toll rising. One of them hit pretty close to home in Joplin, Missouri.

The image that they keep showing over and over came from a cell phone video that was shot in a convenience store there, literally as the tornado was tearing that store apart. Now, miraculously, everyone survived. But they sure didn't think they would.

Now, as you look at this video, most of it is pitch blackness. You just see an occasional flash of something flying by. But it's the audio that's haunting. Because as the tornado rips that place apart, you hear the screams, you hear the outcries, the terror, and a lady's voice repeatedly saying, "Jesus." And then another voice going, "I love you."

That's the part that stuck out to me. Somewhere in the middle of that mayhem, in the middle of that brush with death, here's a man's voice calling out, "I love you." That got to me.

while He may be found" (Isaiah 55:6). Let this be the day you know you are ready for eternity.

I hope you'll go to our website, because there's information there that I've put there. You can watch it, you can read it, you can listen to it; any form you want, and hear there exactly how to begin your personal relationship with Christ.

I remember what one man said after a deadly tornado in Oklahoma, "It made us remember that we all have an expiration date, and we don't know when it is." Uh-huh. And now is all we know for sure.
