Lessons from the Crocidile Man

Just like everyone in America, Australia and around the world I was shocked at how the crocodile hunter's life was taken. Now here was a man that faced many dangerous animals and he was speared by a stingray? Interesting! This story is an example of how quick the life of a person can be snuffed out. One never knows when he or she will draw their last breath. It is so important that a person gets right with God immediately and cries out to Him in repentance and turns from the sins in their life.

I don’t know if Steve Irwin was saved and a born-again Christian, but he was sure passionate about life, a family-man and alerting people to the fact that animals are special creatures and they need to be kept safe. Christians, what can we learn from some aspects of this man's life? First, we need to be more passionate about our message and the Word of God; that is boldly, and joyfully proclaiming the good news of the Gospel to a lost and dying world. Second, we cannot forget our families, our dear spouse and children.

This is a plea today for you to come to personal faith in Jesus Christ and turn from your sins so that you can experience life that lasts forever.
