When terrorists attacked on 9/11 they left a pile of rubble called Ground Zero where two towers once stood. It was in that moment that rather than giving up and surrendering as they had hoped we would, Americans stood together and became stronger. God hates evil and promises to hold vengeance in His hands, yet He also uses times in our lives when we feel destroyed to turn us around to follow Him. Paul is a perfect example of someone who was known as the greatest of sinners and yet God used a “Ground Zero” moment in his life to bring him to repentance. We will all come to an end in this life whether by death or by Jesus returning, but the question we have to face is where we’ll be after this life. The only way to hold assurance to the hope that is offered through Christ is to surrender to Him, acknowledge our sin, and repent.
