God's Word for Tuesday, 7/17/18

So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Romans 1:15-17 KJV

It’s news I’m most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else! God’s way of putting people right shows up in the acts of faith, confirming what Scripture has said all along: “The person in right standing before God by trusting him really lives.”
Romans 1:15-17 MSG

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Pilot of plane that crashed near Ketchikan said he attempted emergency climb

Everyone in the plane survived. Two passengers remained hospitalized Wednesday afternoon, one in Seattle and the other in Ketchikan.
One reportedly suffered a back injury, the other a foot or leg injury, according to preliminary information from investigators.
Pilot Mike Hudgins, 72, was flying a Taquan Air de Havilland Otter from a fishing lodge at Steamboat Bay to Ketchikan when the plane crashed at about 2,000 feet above the West Arm of Cholmondeley Sound, Alaska State Troopers said.
Hudgins told a National Transportation Safety Board investigator he left the lodge around 7:50 a.m., according to Clint Johnson, NTSB's Alaska region chief. He said he encountered ceilings of about 1,100 feet and 3 to 5 miles of visibility.
As Hudgins navigated through mountains between the lodge and Ketchikan, it's likely visibility diminished, Johnson said. The pilot told investigator Brice Banning he saw the side of the mountain rising up ahead of him.
"Once he saw the rising terrain, he tried to do an emergency climb," Johnson said. The plane, slowed by the sudden climb, dropped as the side of the mountain came up.
A photo of the plane at the crash site shows the wings drooping but little front-end damage, as if the Otter hit hard but not nose-first.
Rescuers battling thick clouds got to the plane after more than an hour of searching, hoisted everyone to a sea-level staging area, then flew them back to Ketchikan. None of the injuries were described as life-threatening.
