Another sad time for America, particularly the families and friends of the 17 who lost their lives in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday.
It is a stark warning to countless other school administrators, teachers, and students—people anywhere, for that matter—that this sort of evil can happen at any moment.
That, of course, underscores the admonition of Hebrews 3:16: As it is said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion (of Israel).”
The time for any one of us could come suddenly, as it has for the many who have perished in these wanton acts of satanic violence.
But we can secure our place in eternity by the grace of God through simple, childlike faith in Jesus Christ. It’s turning from unbelief to belief; turning from spiritual death, inherited from Adam … to spirit life, available only in Jesus.
My dear friends, if you have not made that choice, that decision, to trust in the truth of the gospel of our Lord Jesus, I urge you as Paul did in 2 Corinthians 5:20 as an ambassador of Christ: as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
About being saved, Romans 10:9-10 says, that 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; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
May our Lord shed His gracious mercy on all those who are suffering the loss of a family member or a friend.
