Last night we attended a Matt Redman and Christy Nockels concert, which was really a big worship session. It is a privilege to freely worship in this country, and it warmed my heart to devote an evening to worshiping God. It was like a feast for my hungry soul.
This morning I was still basking in the experience of the night before. Then I turned on the news. In Charleston, South Carolina, another group of Christians who were freely worshiping the same God at the same time had their lives end. It breaks my heart for them and their families and their community. One thing that I am aware of today as I pray for those affected is this. We all need Jesus. Every day. Every moment. Those families know that more than ever. We will be talking about this for some time. Let’s be praying as well. Pray for these precious people to be comforted as they walk through this very dark valley.
