9/11 - a day that changed some...

There are very few dates in our American History that are as well known as
9/11. How many dates come to your minds that have special meanings? July 4,
our Independence Day; then there is December 7th, Pearly Harbor Day. Sure
there are other special days; Christmas; Easter; Birthdays; Anniversaries
and such. But no one day has so touched our now living generations as
September Eleventh.

That day on which we were brutally attacked and thousands killed left an
indelible mark on our nation and on the hearts of those who were alive to
witness this exhibition of savagery.

At that time our nation was drawn together! People, who did not make it a
practice to worship God, flocked to our churches. Strangers came together
for comfort; people asked "How could anyone do such a thing?" People cried,
people prayed, people gave of themselves and their money; people searched
their souls, maybe some for the first time and considered their relationship
to God and eternal life.

What has changed over the passing of a few years? What has happened to the
overwhelming need to reconnect to God? Why are our churches not still
overflowing with people searching for something outside of themselves?

You know the answer as well as I, because you experience it and fight
against it just as I do. Satan, the one who twists men and women's hearts
has told folks, "Don't worry about it, it will never happen to you." And
they believe him! Now he doesn't tell them in those words, but he has drawn
off their attentions from God, from their souls, from what might happen in

If you think about it, not much has changed in 2000 years. Our Lord and
Savior was subjected to savagery and brutality and murdered. The response
was fairly quick, within months there were literally thousands of people who
responded to the message of what has happened. They learned how much their
God could love them through the death of Jesus of Nazareth. The churches
grew, they dealt with more savage attacks and stood firm because they were
the generation which had experience it. But Satan used the same methods then
that he does now and many forgot, many quit attending, nothing has changed.

However there are always a faithful few, the hope of the world, the apple of
God's eye, the ones with hope and faith in their hearts that reject Satan's
lies. Which group are you in?

Do you remember what Jesus said in Revelation 2:5, "Remember therefore from
whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works ... " Jesus
warned he would spit folks (who were not keeping their promise to him), out
of his mouth."! Rev 3:16
