This week marks the one year anniversary of the tragedy at Mother Emmanuel. Although we continue to be angry and morn over this attack, guest speaker Pastor Philip Pinckney encouraged Redeemer Presbyterian Church, in Charleston, SC, to wage war, not according to the flesh, but according to the Word.
We are human and are often reminded of it in moments of weakness and attacks. The prophet Habakkuk demonstrated how we walk according to the flesh and cry out to the Lord for help against the violence and destruction, as though he has left us powerless. II Corinthians tells us the Lord does not leave us powerless against this trauma, but provides us with weapons to defend ourselves. Listen to this encouraging message here.
