The news changes our world, changes our day. Around the world many people are celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden. He was supposedly the master-mind behind the 9/11 tragedy in NY almost 10 years ago where 3000 people died.
We have spent billions of dollars trying to kill him. We have entered multiple wars and killed tens of thousands of people around the globe in retribution. I ask you, is this just? Are we missing the point?
I think so.
As believers, the main thing is always the main thing. The lost souls of men. Who on the news is sad that a man who cursed the Savior of the World with his life is now suffering for all of eternity in Hell (unless, like the thief on the cross turned at the last moment). Bin Laden will continue to sin against God for all of eternity. No salvation is now offered to him. This is awful! His soul is forever gone to torment.
My prayer today, is no different than yesterday, or last week. May every ear hear the good news of Jesus Christ. May every soul be saved!
If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
All men and women are sinners in need of a savior. (Romans 3:23) To believe that all things were created out of nothing, by nothing, ever existing with no first cause, is ludicrous. It defies every scientific principle known to man. It defies Christ. It defies scripture. People know there is a God who made them. People know they live because made them. If men turn to the truth of scripture, they can live for Jesus and begin to understand their purpose and meaning in life. Only then will they live!
Everyone will bow the knee to God. Either today, tomorrow, or after death. But all will bow the knee. I pray for my dear friends at Dreamworks who think life is about money and good times. I pray for my extended family and relatives who don't know and serve Christ as described in scripture. I pray for the souls of my children.
God has blessed my wife and I with caring parents and a privileged life, being in the USA. The quest for religious freedom has spilt much blood. Any of you on USA soil are the benefactors of such a pursuit. May we not take for granted what God has given. May the world know, everything they have comes from God. He is in control. He loves them and died for their sins so that they wouldn't have to endure the eternal wrath of God, like Osama Bin Laden. I pray he repented before he died!
May God have mercy on us all.
