6.5 Ton Satellite On A Collision Course With Earth
Glad I went To Confession
By: Bradley Opitz
So, you might have heard that a 6 and ½ ton satellite is headed on a collision course with earth right now as we speak. If you have not heard about this yet on the news take a second and get caught up with the rest of the world.
Now that we are all on the same page lets get down to the business end of what is going to happen. NASA claims that they don’t know where the satellite is going to land. Pretty much the only people that have been deemed to be safe from being crushed by this bus sized piece of space death are the one thousand people who live in Antarctica. This means then, that you and I very well could be living out our last couple of day(s). I’ll give you a second to let that sink in.
What are you going to do with your last day(s) on earth? You are going to die. It is inevitable. If not by NASA’s man made sky terrorist known as the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, then it will be something else. We are finite. Life is short. At some point you will not exist, as we know you. It’s too often that we forget this fact and lose sight of what the reason for life is. St. Paul proclaims, “And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruits of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God” (Philippians 1:9-11 rsvce).
This message might sound depressing to you if you are not currently living for the Kingdom, and you do not believe fully that Christ has pulled us out of the grave through his death and resurrection. We were created to GLORIFY GOD and for nothing else. St. Paul wrote, “…Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:20-21 rsvce). When we can say that with St. Paul, then you know that when NASA kills you, it will not be so bad.
