Just wondering, what, if anything are you going to do this Sunday in honor/memory of September 11th? Just an idea I have an available outline that I am going to preach titled, "Have you forgotten?" You are all welcome to use it if you so desire. Sub: Sept. 11th Memorial Theme: Remembering Sept. 11th. Txt: Deut 8:18 Intro: Sept. 11th marked what may be forever known as the darkest day in all of America’s history. Thousands of innocent lives were taken on that horrid day due to a harsh act of pure terrorism. Yet, in the midst of that darkness a beacon of light shone upon the world, The Church. In that moment the Church stepped forward and offered sanctuary to the hurting and confused. In that moment more people turned back to Jesus than ever before. The passion of the love of Jesus Christ shone throughout the land… Of course, like all things, time washed memories thin. A popular slogan rang through this nation one the one year anniversary commemorating this horrid day. With that one thought in mind I have a message straight from the heart. Prop: Every Christian should remember the following truths… “Have you forgotten?” I. Freedom. a. The joy freedom. b. The cost of freedom. i. Jesus upon Calvary. (His death = our Freedom) 1.

Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 1. Condemnation of sin. 2. Consequence of Sin. a. Romans 6:23 the wages of sin is death. b.
