Can you believe that happened?

Luke 13:1-5
There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answered and said to them, Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower of Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.

Christ here contrasts two different sets of people who met tragedy. One tragedy was purposefully done through Pilate’s efforts. The other tragedy was by being in the wrong place at the wrong time scenaro.

Christ’s message – be prepared to die. Except a person repent of his sinful nature and trust in the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ – he/she too will likewise perish.
