Boston Marathon Explosions

Boston Marathon Explosions April 15 2013As reports continue to flood in from Boston regarding this afternoon’s multiple explosions my heart felt prayers go out to all who are in Boston today, especially the victims and their families.

While this is still a developing event and it is way too early to draw any conclusions~~ it would at least appear that the explosions were intentional.

If this is the case, in addition to praying for the victims we should also keep in mind the words of our Lord Jesus Christ who said, “But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Matthew 5:44 ESV.

This, of course, is not easy to do– yet I do believe it is an entirely appropriate response for a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Another thought is the extremely fragile nature of human life. The Bible repeatedly reminds us that life is brief… we should all give our loved ones an extra hug and a kiss today.

We should also be mindful that the Bible very clearly tells us “it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.” Hebrews 9:27 ESV. Are you prepared to die? Are you prepared for this judgement?? If you have any doubts check out this video over at

  1. I appreciate your application of relevant Scriptures to this awful attack, brother Scott. Truly only the crucified, risen, & ascended Christ can answer such evil with hope.
