9/11 was Friday

Posted on September 13, 2015 · Posted in Worldview, Worship

Today is Sunday 9/13. Like Friday, there was no attack on our country. Many of you went to church this day and arrived home safely.

What does that mean?

For many of us it means that we have, once again, forgotten how dependent we are upon on God’s care. Not everyday is December 7th, or September 11th. But they could be. And, truthfully, no one knows what September 14th will be remembered for. What we do know is that each day you and I are totally dependent upon God’s faithfulness for our safety, whether we acknowledge that reality or not.

Gather your family this night and thank God for the care that he provides. Ask his forgiveness for so easily dismissing his lovingkindness. Ask for courage when days like 9/11 come again.

Most importantly, speak boldly about our Lord and his salvation. Honor God for who he is: the King of Kings, the Lord of all Creation and the One Who is the Savior of sinners.

Tomorrow is a new day. Regardless of what may come your God still reigns. May we never forget.
