Justice for Trayvon

By  |  1 Comment

What was going on in your life on Sunday, February 26, 2012? For most of us it was just another day in the many days of our lives, but for Trayvon Martin it was the last day of his life. That day armed with a pack of Skittles and iced tea, Trayvon was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watchman.

A 911 call reveals that George was instructed by the dispatcher not to follow Trayvon, but George pursued him anyway. In the end, a seventeen-year old African-American male lie dead with a wound to the back of his head. To this day George has not been charged with any crime because of Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, a self-defense law that allows people to “shoot first and ask questions later. “

Since Trayvon’s death, people have been asking the authorities for justice to be done. In the public’s mind, Trayvon’s unjust death deserves retribution. But if the facts of the story had matched what the public thought deserved a death’s end, there would have been no million-hoodie march.

What if Sunday, February 26, 2012 was the last day of your life? As a result, you found yourself standing before God in search of justice. Would the facts of your life story match what God has determined deserves eternal life or eternal death:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus, our Lord. (Romans 6:23)?
