remembering 9-11 [+] Friday E-Devotion

Where were you when our nation was attacked 8 years ago this morning?  I was sitting at my desk at the church I was pastor of.  We moved there only 3 months before.  What I learned, what I saw would not only change America.  But it would also change me.

Proverbs 3:25 (NASB) --- Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes;

I have not been sharing a devotion on Fridays lately because I am taking this day off.  Yet I want to ask you to remember and pray.  Pray for the families that were touched.  Pray for our nation that continues to be at war and in need of God.  Remember that we need God.

Do you remember those around you, those in the media and our nation turned toward God?  It was a natural move that has since been forgotten.  We must remember.  We must pray.

Our church along with many others are taking this day to serve in our community in the 9-11 Day of Service & Remembrance.  Just simple acts of kindness sharing Jesus with those we encounter.  

Please remind others that we need God.  Don't just use your words.  Use your hands and your heart.  Show people that you care.  Show them that God cares.  Our gracious God will use our selfless acts that has no strings attached to them to win those around us.

You remember where you were on 9-11-01.  Where will you be praying and serving today, 9-11-09?

Galatians 5:13 (NLT) --- For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
