The events that happened in Connecticut this past week reminds me of the sinfulness of sin and effects of the fall in Genesis 3 and how there needs to be an urgency for the gospel of Jesus Christ as the only cure for it.
Below are some links to help us put it into perspective.
“If trifles are vital parts of divine providence, what of evil? Evil is often vastly significant. The most important event which ever occurred was, in one aspect, horribly evil. The crucifixion of Jesus from the standpoint of the crucifiers was grotesquely wicked. Yet, even though the killing of Christ was atrocity itself, what event was so vital and its effects so beneficial as the death of Christ? If God’s providence does not include evil, it does not include the most important event which has ever taken place.” (John Gerstner Theology for Everyman, Moody, 1965, Chapter 2.)

Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; Isaiah 46:9,10
The Lord has established
His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules
over all. Psalm 103:19
that’s a beautiful thing!
Soli Deo Gloria
