An Irreversible Spin

"Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death."1

Following the crash of an Aeroflot jet in Siberia, which killed all 75 people aboard in March of 1994, the voices heard on the recording were ones of terror! They came from a chilling scene. Apparently the pilot was giving his children a flying lesson at the time of the crash.

The transcript from the cockpit tapes reveals the desperate situation. "Daddy, can I turn this?" cried the child who was sitting in the captain's seat.

Then came the voice of the captain shouting, "Get out! Get out! More than a dozen times he yelled out to his son who had "accidentally pushed the right pedal, sending the aircraft into an irreversible spin."

Sometimes the choices we make seem insignificant at the time, but when we stop living the life we believe, we end up unhappily believing the life we live. In so doing we can put our life into "an irreversible spin" and unless we face the reality of our actions and call to God for help, in the long run there's no way out.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to so live that I will never ignore your Word with its moral principles for daily living or forget You and thereby place my life in an irreversible spin. And thank You that when I am in trouble and call out to You for help, You always hear and answer my prayers. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. James 1:15 (NKJV).
