Today marks the seventeenth anniversary of the tragedies at the twin towers and other locations. Do you remember where you were? I do.
It was my second day on the job as part-time band director at Emmanuel Christian School in Hartsville, SC. We had live there 5 days, and I was teaching a band class first thing in the morning. My custom was to pop in to the school office before I left.
One of the school secretaries received the disturbing news via a phone call from her husband. It was unbelievable. I went home and watched television on the only day I could pick up antenna television during the 2 years I lived there. The scenes played over and over. For many, there was a brief awakening. Churches were a little more full for a few weeks, then most everything went back to normal…except for the families who were directly affected.
I asked where you were then. Where are you now? I’m not talking about your physical location. Will it take a tragedy to get you close to God, or are you walking closely with Him now? Don’t wait for a loss or something horrible to happen. Jesus is standing at the door and knocking, waiting for you to let Him in. Will you let Him in while you still have the opportunity?
