This will be a somber post. I would like to express my sincere condolences for those who were effected by the shooting in Colorado today. Many are hurting right now, trying to make sense of it all. We need to pray hard and long for these folks. This will be a turning point in their lives one way or another. It is also a time to remember to pray for our country, for the nations of the world… because this type of thing is running rampant throughout.
Pray that people may find comfort in Christ. Show those around you the love that Christ has shown you. People are hurting. People want love and to be shown love. Unfortunately we tend to be caught up in our political and religious views, our everyday living, jobs, family, etc… where we tend to forget about loving the people who need it.
We need to remember that Christ said:
“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
Let us not forget these words. And lastly pray for the man who did the shooting… I don’t know what evil was in his heart, or how it came to be there. He needs our prayers too. Maybe if someone would have reached out to him in love at some point before this happened, maybe this outcome would not have happened. I do not know.
O, Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner…
Peace to you all.
