9/11—Looking Back

Perhaps you're already tired of re-visiting 9/11, 10 years later. Even then, it might be beneficial to pause and remember a few things…

1. The thousands of lives that were snuffed out in a matter of hours, and the many more that were lost in the subsequent wars. “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5b).

2. The tragic delusion of those who apparently believed that they were doing the right thing by engaging in acts of terrorism. “Take heed lest any man deceive you” (Mark 13:5)

3. A nation and society that indignantly rejected the idea that God—in the midst of evil and destruction—was speaking to us about our own individual, national and collective evil. “We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments” (Daniel 9:5)

4. There is a day coming when everything—the magnificent structures, the environmental disasters, the amazing machinery and technological devices and the nuclear bombs—will all crumble and burn. “The heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:10)

5. Today is still the day of grace. “To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts” (Hebrews 3:15).
