"Rescued from this body of death"

Here's one of those scary/gross/a little funny stories that show up now and then, today via the Post-Dispatch.

"Man buys smoker, finds human leg inside."

"Police said the man opened up the smoker and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off 2 to 3 inches above the knee.

[The leg's ] mother explained her son had his leg amputated after a plane crash and kept the leg following the surgery "for religious reasons" she doesn't know much about."

I think this story is just shocking enough that somebody could use it as an illustration for a message to high school students. Anyone have an idea how?

A lesson on the futility of hanging onto something that God has cut out of your life?

a discussion on being flexible in youth ministry and how to roll with the punches?

the topic/idea of what can happen when we place something in our lives first, what we can find inside ourselves as a result?

The idea of how we as humans are nice on the outside, but can have a rotting, sinful heart inside?
