Battlefield

April 17, 2013

The battle between good and evil is fought on many fronts. It can involve the pain threshold of fetuses in the womb, or the purchase by thirteen year old girls of the “morning after” pill without knowledge of their parents. It can involve the shooting deaths of innocent children in a quiet New England town.

Monday that battle involved the Boston marathon.

We may find words difficult to come by, in the face of yet another scene of carnage, yet more lives impacted or lost. We may be saddened and discouraged. But we must not grow weary. We must not allow others to define our course of action. We must not abandon hope that good will prevail. That is what our adversaries want.

The battle lines are not always clearly drawn. On Monday, however, they were.

We must have the courage to engage in a struggles as old as time, on whatever battlefield we may find ourselves.  Whether the battle rages on the streets or in the courts, the war was won for us on Calvary.  Let us, therefore, “run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12: 1), for in Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our Faith (Heb. 12: 2), we can securely place our trust.
