PASTOR'S BLOG

Hello HighPoint!  Over the last few days I’ve been asking how to explain the tragic loss of life at the High School in Santa Fe, Texas and I realize that I can’t.  Sadly, these kinds of things are becoming all too familiar in our world.  We can only imagine the grief and anguish of the families and community who have been attacked so savagely just last week.  I’m sure that we will soon learn the motivation of the shooter but regardless of why a person does these things makes it no less terrible.  Now, when something like this happens people often ask, “What is this world coming to?”  Well, after praying about this situation for a few days I’ve realized that it’s not a what but a “who.”  It’s about “who is this world coming to,” and I’ll tell you, it’s coming to Jesus Christ.  The truth is that Jesus saw these days and the hurt, sin and harm that has been done.  He saw them and payed for them at the cross.  That’s why He says in John 16:33 (NIV) “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”  Now, this may not sound like much comfort for the community of Santa Fe right now as they try to heal and make sense of this tragedy.  It doesn’t make sense to any of us and the reason is that you can’t make sense out of sin and evil.  This is the reason that I challenge us to seek to look at this through the eyes of God.  What I mean is how does God see this.  Like I said, He saw it over 2000 years ago and the pain of this day was carried on His shoulders on that day!  Now, God knew it was coming but we didn’t and the hurt, anger and confusion that this event has caused is new.  The human response is anger and fear, but Jesus said this to us, in John 14:27 (NIV) “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Listen, the loss and senseless act of violence the other day has already grieved the heart of God, but His grace is sufficient for our every need.  That means that we need His strength and we must rest in Him to bring good, out of a bad situation.  So, what would God say to those in Santa Fe or to the rest of us?  I believe He would say what He spoke in Romans 12:9-1-19, 21 (NIV) “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone…Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”  We don't overcome evil with being angry or frustrated or fearful.  God says that we overcome evil with good.  We do that as we love, serve and pray or our neighbors in Santa Fe.  We also can trust that God is in control and because He is we can rest in His ability to comfort and heal those who have lost so much.  For us, the most powerful and effective thing that we can do is pray for Santa Fe and those affected by this tragedy.  So, I’m asking you to join me as we pray for this community, for the survivors, the students, school officials, first responders and especially for the families who lost loved ones.

 

Thank you for being the heart of Christ,

Pastor Walter
