I’ve been involved in several serious car accidents but haven’t approached death’s door. I’ve been hunting and had shots fired in my direction, but nothing too close. Talk to almost anyone who has almost died, and they will inevitably talk about how lucky they are to be alive. I don’t believe in luck. I’m not talking about the “I make my own luck” kind of luck-disbelief, but the “I believe in a sovereign God” kind. I don’t know why God chooses to show mercy to some while letting others pass on to eternity. I do know that if you are fortunate enough to be alive, you have experienced God’s mercy and compassion, even if you don’t believe in Him. So, why are you still living? What is your purpose?
Philippians 2:27: “And he certainly was ill; in fact, he almost died. But God had mercy on him—and also on me, so that I would not have one sorrow after another.”
