- We need to be reminded that because we sinned in Adam, we now live in a fallen world. It is not God’s fault that terrible things happen—it is our fault because we sin against a Holy God (Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23).
- Our God of love stepped into history to pay the penalty for our sin and offers a free gift of salvation to save us from what we have done (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9).
- As we live in this groaning world (Romans 8:22), we need to support and pray for our relatives. Everyone, by the way, is our relative—going all the way back to Adam and Eve (1 Timothy 6:16–19).
- Pray for America—pray for its leaders—pray that America as a nation will repent of any sin and turn to the God of creation—and build this society on the authority of the Word of God.
It’s a very sobering experience to be at Ground Zero.
In FloridaThis weekend, I am speaking at a church in Clermont (near Orlando), Florida. I will be speaking on the relevance of Genesis at the Saturday evening and Sunday morning services, then two different presentations Sunday evening. For details, go here.
Writing our own prescriptionThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Numbers 10:31–32) And he said, Leave us not, I pray you; forasmuch as you know how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and you may be to us instead of eyes. And it shall be, if you go with us, yes, it shall be, that what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto you.
When we say that we need anything or anyone along with God to rely on, we have just written our own prescription for that person or thing to be removed.
