Death is the enemy of us all. Murder is evil and unjustified. The Las Vegas shooting broke my heart; 58 people gone in a matter of minutes.
The largest recorded mass murder in the U.S. is around 300 people. From San Bernardino to South Carolina, we need to stand together in prayer. Unfortunately, we live in a world that continues to deteriorate. Natural disasters and the violence of mankind; they always have been, and will continue to be apart of the world’s landscape.
What’s a Christian to do? Prayer is power, but prayer and action is powerful! Get off your knees and get involved in the world‘s landscape. Volunteerism, mentorship, activism, and politics. We need Christians who aren’t afraid to get down and dirty for Christ. He will give you the strength to stand.
“‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4 (NIV)
