Circling the Airport

Listen to Audio (right click to save)

I once had a very exciting night at Chicago's very busy O'Hare Airport. Just as I was getting ready to leave, they informed us that the radar in the tower had suddenly gone down. Do you know what that means? That means the flight controllers have no way to do anything mechanically to get your plane in or out, so they had to shut O'Hare down to one runway and limit themselves to visual landings. Well, needless to say, many of us didn't go anywhere that night, and I was frustrated because I couldn't get out of the airport.

But then I thought about the people up above me who couldn't land! As I went outside I saw all these lights; the lights of planes that were circling the airport in what seemed like endless holding patterns. Many of them actually ended up diverted to other destinations that night. You can imagine how frustrated they were. They're almost home, they're in sight of Chicago, but they're not on the ground. They're almost, but they're not in-maybe like you.

You have to consciously give the rest of your life to Jesus Christ and put all of your trust in the One who died for your sins, and tell Him you're doing that. He's the One who bought you with His blood, with His life.

I would love to help you make it the rest of the way home. Would you just come to our website? Join me there for a few minutes at You're not far, but you're not in. Come home today.
