Sad, Yet Happy...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there are times when special times are addressed.  Like in today's entry.

Tuesday, June 10th was a happy and sad, day.

At the Moncton Coliseum, the funeral service was held for the three (3) RCMP officers who were fatefully shot last Wednesday, June 4, 2014.  I must thank my friend A, who let me know that the service was being aired on television.  May God bless you, A...

During the part of the service honouring Douglas James Larche, I was happy to hear Bible verses quoted.  His eulogy given by his brother, was very loving.

Although what the spiritual advisor said honouring Fabrice Georges Gevauden, with regards to his friend who had died, was very nice and loving, it truly made me sad.  For there was no mention of our Lord, Jesus Christ, at all.  Probably, because He's not part of this religious group.

During the part of the service honouring Dave Joseph Ross, his brother-in-law gave his eulogy.  Two (2) of his pastors, plus a chaplain spoke, reading Bible verses.

Feel free to check out this link:  http://globalnews.ca/news/1384441/thousands-expected-in-moncton-as-city-mourns-3-slain-mounties/.  This article explains how thousands of people attended the funeral service.

Afterwards, our Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, spoke. 

He gave tribute to Douglas Larche, Fabrice Gevauden and Dave Ross, which everyone expected he would do, since this was a funeral service tribute.  But, he also gave tribute to Eric Dubois and to Darlene Goguen, the RCMP officers who had been injured during the operation that changed the lives of so many.  For this, I praise God!

I also praise God for all others who were involved in this operation caused by a killer, and who survived.  May God bless each of you!

People sometimes think of police officers as being very different people.  However, the truth is that people are all the same, being human.

The difference is truly nothing to do with us being human.  For we are all born sinners.  Dead in our trespasses and sins.

Just as we read in Ephesians 2:1, "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;".  Of course, most people prefer more easily understood English, spoken, today... like the New King James Version (NKJV), which reads, "And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,".

Yes, He made us alive, because we were dead.  Dead in our trespasses and sins.

If we don't come to Christ, we are not made alive, to gain salvation and receive eternal life. 

God has made it very clear.  He will save, whom He will save.

Are you saved?

Are you trusting in Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, for your salvation? 

Nothing else will save you.  Believe upon/trust in Him, and you will be saved (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
