God's Newest Little Angel
Another senseless murder; this time of a precious little Innocent nine year girl killed on a Chicago street last night. We can't cry out to God to ask, why? We know the answer to that, it is because we live in a fallen world, a world full of sin. A world that has gone so wrong, that life has no meaning for so many who walk our streets. Many who would rather pull a gun or a knife out to settle an argument then to stand up and settle the argument like a real man with character and honor.
Police Supt. Jody Weis said the shooting that left Chastity Turner dead was gang-related. "We're interviewing a lot of people right now. We've got some very, very good leads. I'd like to thank everybody in the city of Englewood for reaching out; they were good citizens. We've got great witnesses and that case is moving along favorable. All the indications right now are it's a gang-related shooting."
Update-Two people are in custody in Wednesday night’s drive-by slaying of a 9-year-old girl who was outside her grandmother’s house washing her dog when she was shot in the neck, police said.
But this is very little comfort to the Mother and Father and all her loved ones, who are left behind to grieve for this child.
Nearly two thousand years ago there was another Mother and Father to grieve the death of their precious innocent Son, Jesus. But the murder of this Son had been in the planning stage for more then three thousand years earlier. A murder that would set the world inhabitants free from all sin's bondage. A murder that was actually cheered on by the leaders of the community, leaders that were so blinded by their own greed for power that they could not see the source of all life, the light of the world which stood before them.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
