In a recent column, I wrote of a young friend – Jeff – who was killed in an automobile accident. His vehicle was struck by a car that ran a red light and broadsided him.
Unscrambled from the wreck by the “jaws of life,” he was alive and alert but died on a helicopter stretcher after landing and being lifted from the hospital tarmac.
Jeff left a wife and children, but the story was more about the camaraderie of him and four close friends who grew to manhood and their relationship with Jesus. The story centered on how God worked salvation into the hearts of non-believers through the death of a Christian.
