It’s hard to believe that 18 years have gone by since the Twin Towers in New York City were destroyed. As I write this newsletter article on “9-11” of 2019, all of the news programs are remembering the horrific actions flowing from mankind’s sinful hearts which killed and injured so many people! Holy Scripture tells us that “Out of the heart comes evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft false testimony, slander.” Matthew 15:19. But thanks be to God through Jesus Christ, there is power in God’s word to renew our fallen hearts and minds – and to forgive repentant hearts!
