In a time when the world is morning the destruction of a building, (Notre Dame Church) a greater evil is going for the most part unnoticed. Notre Dame Church has been in the news for a week and over 1/2 Billion dollars was raised in less than 6hrs in support.
But what is being done about the evil that destroys that that cannot be replaced or rebuilt, the loss of human lives. I fear the same exuberance shown to help replace art, bricks and mortar will not be exhibit towards those who have experience the ultimate loss.
About a month ago the Nigerian Christian death toll reached 200 over several weeks at the hands of those who hate Jesus Christ and anyone who follows Him. Today several bombs killed 207 people and injured almost 500 more taking part in Sri Lancan Easter Services celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The human toll has been devastating. The unspeakable evil has left many with no way to support their families now, not to mention the mental trauma support they must need.
The fire at Notre Dame was a tragic loss but not compared to the loss of loved ones. We will be hearing about Notre Dame church in the news for some time I imagine but I fear the devastation of Christian lives will be yesterdays news by tomorrow.
The precious lives lost in recent days are tragic for those left behind, but they are not without hope. Jesus promises life beyond this world and that is our hope.
I ask you this, if Jesus did not rise two thousands years ago, would so many hate Him and what he stands for? If God does not exist, would there be so much evil trying to silence his messengers? Maybe, maybe not.
John 16:33; “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
Revelation 1:18; I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.
