The Lord is the avenger
Last night there was a tragedy here in Sonoma. A 17-yr-old boy was murdered by a gang member in the park not far from my home - so sad.
Today Karen and I were on the radio discussing the wickedness of Halloween.
The human heart is wicked and that's why we need a Saviour.
As long as folks turn away from the Lord Jesus Christ to their own selfish desires, there is no hope for them.
May the Lord use this killing to open people's eyes to the emptiness of their lives if they are without a personal relationship with the truth Living God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
From 1 Thessalonians 4
1Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
8He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
