Our hearts are broken and our prayers are being lifted up for the families of those who have lost loved ones, relatives, and friends. Yesterday morning, when co-workers were gathered together for a Christmas celebration, it was tragically interrupted when two individuals started shooting. CBN is reporting one of the shooters, identified as Syed Farook, left the celebration, returned with a woman, Tashfeen Malik, clothed with “tactical style clothing, ammunition, and body armor”. Chief of San Bernardino Police Department, Jarrod Burguan, “Based upon what we have seen and based upon how they were equipped, there had to have been some degree of planning that went into this…” As a result, 14 are dead, and 17 are wounded.
As continual headlines are being heard, seen, and passed on previous events and realities regarding our law enforcement officers in America, we cannot overlook the brave and heroic actions of those who responded to end this tragic event. When one officer was on scene speaking calmly to bystanders, seeking to evacuate them from the building, this is what he said to them: “Try and relax, everyone try to relax. I’ll take a bullet before you do.” They did their job successfully by quickly arriving and stopping this evil atrocity from continuing any further. What is the Church supposed to do? 1 Peter 4:7 says this: “The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.” We must shake ourselves of all things that seek to distract us so that we can be about the Father’s business; making disciples and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
