Our Sympathies for Las Vegas

Our Sympathies for Las Vegas

Our sympathies and prayers are with the families impacted by the Las Vegas tragedy.

While we mourn the loss, we are grateful for our Christian faith that causes us to see beyond today to brighter hope tomorrow. The Bible teaches:

1)      This world is not getting better. As much as America thinks it has moved “beyond-needing-God,” events like this show us that society cannot fix what’s broken with mankind. We can’t solve the problems of humanity with better laws, stiffer penalties, or larger fences. Our progressive, pluralistic society is not turning out better people. Only the gospel can change peoples’ hearts and save our society.

2)      The devil may smile but his ship is sinking. “He knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Rev. 12:12). We should be encouraged that these days of death and destruction will come to an end. With the increase of violence, we can be pretty sure that the devil is running out of time. The Prince of peace is on the threshold. He’s coming soon!

3)      Christians praying is the only hope for our nation. “If my people which are called by name will humble themselves and pray . . . then will I heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14). Don’t stand aghast. Drop to your knees in prayer. Pray that grace will abound over sin. Pray that the gospel will reach more people, and that hurting families may find the peace that God supplies (Is. 57:19-20).
