It doesn’t matter if we are hispanic;
Or any other!
What matters is that God sent His one and only Son for ALL!
Our prayer is for nations! For peace! For love. For the safety of our children, families, our schools, places of work, churches and homes!
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:6-8 NKJV
Our hearts go out for all the lives lost and injured from the recent tragedy in Orlando, Florida. Yes, a night club, unlikely hour, deeds indescribable… Unbeknownst to the lives entered in that place on that day… that it would be fatal. May God have mercy and comfort the families of those that are victims of this horrific massacre.
By the way of these lives, it is irrelevant of the “type” when we are all created by God. Before all of this arising, He sent His Son to pay the price. Some have a tendency to be overly righteous or think that a particular sin is not worthy of redemption when that is not the case. We should turn from that kind of thinking.
Sin is sin! No matter the kind or frequency of it, this I know that God died for all. That is the emphasis. That we should have this mind if any heart comes to Christ …He has redeemed!
It is scary what is going on in the world and how these things are thought out. For even the unexplainable and indescribable things. As many of these hate crimes occur, there has been a way from the very beginning.
“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:19-21 NKJV
I encourage all, pray for all! If He is for all, then so shall we be. We extend our prayers, deep condolences and hearts to the families affected by this. We love Orlando, Florida. We travel there several times a year because we have many loved ones there. So even more my heart goes out to this city. We stand united in our prayers! May God extend mercy on us all for the safety and security that we need as a whole.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.”
Psalms 91:1-11 NKJV

This is beautiful, no division. One mission, to love as He loves.
