Scripture Lesson: Psalm 78:35

On this date in 2001 after a six day hiatus, Major League Baseball games are played for the first time since the September 11th attacks. At Busch Stadium in St. Louis during a pregame ceremony Cardinals announcer Jack Buck captures the mood of a nation with the reading of an original poem, “We Shall Overcome.” A brand new baseball tradition begins when the song, “God Bless America” is sung during the 7th inning stretch of all six games. That tradition continues today with the singing of “God Bless America” at each 7th inning stretch of every Sunday game in the Major Leagues.

In our Scripture verse today the Psalmist wants us to remember that God is our Rock and our Redeemer. God is someone who we can always count on, who will always be there for us. Not only is he the Rock we can attach our lives to each day, He is our Redeemer. God sent His Son to redeem us from the penalty of sin and death. God saves us and He sustains us, that is a pretty good combination!

1. How can God be our Rock?

2. How did God redeem us?

3. Why do we need to remember those qualities of God every day?

We as a nation will always remember what happened on 9-11. We also must always remember that God is our Rock and our Redeemer.
