6 people just returned a verdict of “Not Guilty” for George Zimmerman in a much watched case about his shooting of unarmed 17 year old “Trayvon Martin”. Regardless of the verdict and the heightened emotions around the case, many questions linger about the sense of justice when the facts “as presented” didn’t satisfactorily implicate wrongdoing. Consequently, one man walks free, having killed another man because of a lack of clear evidence showing malicious intent (at least for 6 people).
One thing’s certain though, life is fragile and often, “justice standeth afar off”. At any given moment we may be called to give up life under a variety of circumstances that we can not control. Make certain your “calling and election are sure”, that the words “Well done, good and faithful servant” will be yours to hear. Trayvon Martin is only one of thousands that experience untimely and unnecessary death. A tragedy for sure yet, when that day comes for you and I, The Verdict Is In!!! Will you have everlasting forgiveness or condemnation? Give your life to Christ while the jury is still out!!!
