I remember exactly where I was eight years ago. I've heard 9/11 is my generation's Kennedy assassination. Except more than one man died that day.
Why does evil multiply and divide instead of subtracting into zero? Because we live in a fallen world. A world where evil will only get worse until Christ returns and puts an end to it.
Come, Lord Jesus. I, for one, am ready to go home.
Today I will remember 9/11. I will pray for the survivors. I will pray for our nation. I will pray for our enemies, because God loves them, too.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Rom 5:8 NIV
May God forgive our nation for its arrogance, idolatry, and ignorance of His laws. May He awaken His children to their duty to be real witnesses to His grace and compassion.
"It is not that Christianity has been tried and found wanting. It is that it has been found hard and never tried." Ravi Zaccharius was quoting someone when he said this, but I only remember Ravi.
May God have mercy on us all.
