There have been so many court trials made public and almost famous recently. They are practically all you hear about on the news.
One in particular that I am thinking about is the George Zimmerman Trial. It was very much covered by the media. Everyone has an opinion as to his guilt or innocence.
This case has worked it's way through the American justice system. And whether we like it or not, the system found him not guilty.
A young man is dead, lives are forever changed and defined by this incidence. Families are affected. Some people will have to face a new life in a new town. The nation is as well because of renewed interest in the war between racists.
Laws will probably be changed in some way.
Trials are not pleasant. Not for anyone involved. Even if the defendant is innocent, the trial is agonizing.
We all face trials in our lives. Each of us go through times and struggles that are hard for us. These hard times may be so hard as to redefine the rest of our lives. Our whole families just might be affected. But we must hold up. We must plow through them. We need to persevere.
Because when "Our Judge" finds us not guilty, when He approves us, we will be rewarded with a new life, an eternal life. And a crown to go along with it. He has promised us that.
I am praying for you. Please, pray for me.
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. (James 1:12 NASB)
