Its time to move on, Molly Albert said. My world has been forever changed, Christina Bibby remarked. The national conversation goes on.
Interviews with people-on-the-street flow through The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, and the broadcast giantsABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN keep us on edge everyday with features on international terrorists, homeland security, SDA (a missile defense shield), and the numerous vulnerabilities America has. To my mind what happened on 9-11-2001 forever stands as a symbol of a violent and unpredictable world. What can we think, do, or say when we all have a level of anxiety or uncertainty? Seared into our soul is the value of each person God has created. But we also know the evil that drives one person to kill another. How can we maintain hope?
I want to offer some suggestions for keeping 9-11 deep in your heart:
You have the decision to make. Will you remember 9-11 with purpose and solidarity with those who weep that day? Will you do something positive for others to bring glory to God? Or, will you add your voice to those who choose to consider it just another day?
One thing seems clear to me: December 7 is a day of remembrance for Pearl Harbor and September 11 should be a day of remembrance as well.
Our lives were forever changed by those violent, evil attacks. We must counterattack with the most powerful weapon: love. As those made in Gods image, we desire to imitate Him.
Are you presently experiencing a new life? Gods word says, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! This new life is a free gift of God through faith Jesus Christ. If you want to know more about this life that only Jesus can give you, sign up for one of our Bible courses. Wherever you are in life, whatever youve done, you can begin again. You may also contact Randy Becton at email@example.com if you have questions about becoming a new creation.
