Yes, the two bones definitely belonged to Mr. Steve Fossett. The proof was in the DNA tests of the two large bones found at the crash site in California.
In early September 2007, Mr. Fossett took off in a single-engine plane and then just disappeared… until now. Also found nearby were his shoes and driver’s license, which he won’t need anymore. This wasn’t according to his plans.
Mr. Fossett wasn’t planning on dying that day. He had survived many adventures. At age 63 he was a multi-millionaire and had spent much of his time and money setting records in hot-air balloons, airplanes, gliders and sailboats. He climbed more than four hundred mountain peaks and swam the English Channel. He was the first person to fly a plane solo around the world without refueling.
But one flight was his last, and he never returned. His flight into eternity was called an accident. He didn’t plan on a mountain rushing into his windshield that September day. No, he was planning his next world record, the land-speed record. It won’t happen. His appointment with death interrupted his plans. Was he prepared for that appointment? We don’t know.
Not one of us knows what will happen tomorrow. Are you prepared if a sudden change should interrupt your plans? What if something unexpected happens and your life suddenly ends? That’s called "death". God says, "It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
Don’t be a fool with and leave God out of your life. You will have an appointment with Him someday. He tells us in Hebrews 9:28 that we can prepare for that appointment: "Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many." God’s beloved Son died on Calvary’s cross, bearing the judgment for the sins of many people - but not for everyone. Only those who acknowledge to God that they are sinners and believe that His Son Jesus died for them, bearing the punishment for their sins, are prepared. If has to be a personal transaction.
What if your plans for today are interrupted? Are you prepared? Have you made that personal transaction with God and His Son?
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
