Where Are You ?
We all remember where we were five (5) years ago today.
We are fixed on the idea that these events have anniversary
dates just as they are memories and only to be remembered.
It is obvious that this day started much before that
fatal day of September 11, 2001. The planning and preparations that the
hijackers employed along with their leaders were in the works for many
days before this attack. Their fervor and passion to destroy our way
of life because of our dissimilarity to the ways of Islam can only be
viewed as a direct attack on all of us as we in America believe in the
rights of all people to believe as they believe. So, I ask you what do
When we hope that the Islamic world will eventually
be drawn to freedoms such as we take for granted, there is little hope
that our democratic ways and capitalistic systems will be an attraction
for replacing their narrow and pragmatic world. Do the whims of an
Islamic imam in a far away country, or the agendas of terrorists who
wish to affect political outcomes have anything to do with your day
to day thinking? It seems when we go through airport security; or when
we watch the news out of Iraq; or worse yet when we hear about a soldier
returning from active duty and they have suffered the ravages of war,
we get a tiny message. That message… it will never be the same!!!
What do we do as individuals given this unpredictable and volatile
world we live in?
As our enemies in this war have declared unconditionally that the only
truce that is acceptable is our conversion to Islam, it is time for all
of us who call ourselves Christian to recommit our lives to Christ and
draw closer to Him! There is nothing that we can do that will compare
to our own sincere faith journey that draws us to our Lord and that must
include spending our days with time in the Bible and on our knees in
prayer. The great song about worship describes what I believe is our
best plan for our individual lives:
“When I come into His presence, I humble myself, I lift up both my
arms and I begin to worship Him…”
Where are you in your walk
with Jesus? There is nothing like a passionate committed
life that sets an example to the world.Where are you?
