My Fellow Christians

This week has been one that will test our faiths and cause us to figure out what we believe. Regardless of whether we agree with the ruling of SCOTUS or not, this is a time to stand with other fellow Christians and show God to those who do not know Him. There is so much hatred being thrown around by parties on both sides of this topic that I feel we are all doing a disservice to those who are searching. We need to show love, even in the midst of a disagreement, so that we can draw others to Christ. Instead of debating the topic at hand (since it has been debated non-stop for the past few days), I am going to share some scripture with you that will show truth.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.”
Romans 1:16

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”
Matthew 5:13

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
James 1:5

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:12

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
James 1:19-22
