What do you stand for? I’m not talking about politics - there is way too much of politics invading the Church. I’m talking about the work of the Gospel. These are not the same thing. We do have a civic duty to vote and then to trust God with the winner - He says He is the one who places people in power, and I believe Him.
We have a much bigger call - to love others like Jesus modeled and commanded us to - no matter what race, creed, social status or background. Even if they’ve chosen a sinful path or some “identity” other than what God gave them - we should love them and show them God is still there for them. No one is too far gone, so choose love not hate and not tolerance - we can still call sin a sin while we are kind to the sinner…
We are to “do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8 NKJV THIS is what the Lord requires! When God is talking about justice here, He is telling us to be equitable and not play favorites. To listen first and to ask Him for advice. He doesn’t mean to punish or take revenge, that’s God’s responsibility. Ours is humility. Let’s do that more in church, shall we?! I am blessed to have found a church that lives this out, but it’s really up to each person who follows Christ - even you.
