Was the act of insanity in Nashville an act of random murder or a targeted act against Christians?

The answer to that question is yet to be known regarding the Nashville Christian School shooting victims.

But this we know: it should be evident to all who are keeping a finger on the pulse of our nation that we have come to a crossroads that will most likely determine the destiny of the United States.

The horrific and senseless attack in Nashville, Tennessee, is a commentary on the soul of America, and it is clear that America’s soul is sin-sick.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Here’s why: the Gospel has been rejected by our government, the Word of God has been rejected by “woke” pastors and churches, and our nation has loosed itself from the moorings of God and His truth. The Bible tells us that God’s grace is what protects us and sustains us, and without His protection, we have no safety whatsoever. God has warned us that if we push Him away, we leave ourselves unprotected and vulnerable to the evils of the human heart and man’s fallen nature. The only answer to what’s happening in our nation is not more laws, and certainly not more gun control because laws cannot change the human heart. Only Jesus Christ can do that.

This is why I am inviting all of you to please join us ONLINE OR IN PERSON for a time of national prayer for the victims, the families, and the community of Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s not too late. Not yet. The Lord is waiting to hear from us.

Our nation has certainly lost its way, and we may be lost as a nation, even as our enemies are at the gates. However, as a people of faith, we can choose to turn back to our nation’s beginnings and to Him who is mighty to save.

As a people, we must receive the conviction of sin and offer to God a heart of repentance so that we might turn to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

If we do not turn to Him, we will see more of what we’re watching today and even worse.

Jesus said that His Father’s house should be called “a house of prayer” (Matthew 21:13) and praying is exactly what we must do now in this hour of tragedy.

By God’s grace and invitation, we can stop this. Together as a people, let us rend our hearts, asking God to forgive us of our sins and pray that God would forgive the grievous sins of our nation. It is now incumbent upon me to ask you to consider joining us LIVE Wednesday evening, March 29th, at 7:00 pm Pacific time as we dedicate our service to praying for our nation and seeking God for His mercy.
