Who will save us?

I watched the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 unfold live on t.v. I will never forget. I will also never forget the chivalry of Mayor Giuliani and President Bush, our law enforcement, firemen, and countless volunteers who rushed to the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, the field of Pennsylvania to help.  The event consumed Americans for a very long time. 

The United States of America mourned and prayed. We became more secure for a time.  We rebuilt and life carried on.

Then we became complacent again while Satan got a foothold.  He played on our fears, our vulnerabilities whilst taking away our sense of reason, patriotism, and reverence for God. In due time we opened ourselves up to new threats that will someday bring us to our knees again perhaps more severely — I am sure of it.

Who will save us from this evil? There is only one answer for all of us.  The answer has nothing to do with our leaders and our public policies.  No new world view or world order will stop it.  The answer begins in our hearts:  believing in the One Who transcends this evil.

Who will save us?  Jesus Christ, that’s Who.  He is the only One with the power to overcome evil.

(That’s a period at the end of that last sentence.)
