so easy&tempting 2feast on the abundance of religious&political commentaries that FLOOD “airwaves” ~ far better 2immerse self in God’s WORD.
even tho we might all be “Christians” together, we hv WILDLY varied convictions; still on this we agree ~ we know God primarily by his WORD.
If we really see the ugliness of the sin nature from which Jesus rescues US, we cannot help but long 4his mercy towards others!
a recovering Everything-is-black-or-white thinker, I’v bn humbled in recent yrs 2see complexity, &spectrum of color, &whole persons.
God teaches us not only 2″love what he loves & hate what he hates” ~ but 2have mercy where he has mercy, 2be patient where he is patient…
4those of us who consider ourselves recovering pharisees ~ how has Christ revealed 2u the truth: “Mercy triumphs over justice”? (James 2:13)
controversies will 4ever be part of our religious &political dialogues..what is more important: the Truth? our Convictions? or our “Rights”?
is our Faith predicated on the zealously affirmed theologies of our favorite famous preachers? or are we hungering 4 & hearing from Christ?
Don’t look to the left or to the right ~ Just WORK THE PLAN, and the results will follow naturally.
The truth? I was willingly trapd by notion I had 2believ rightly about EVERYTHNG &get u 2b same as me. Then GRACE broke thru; CHRIST is all.
The truth? It really doesn’t matter what “they” think. It’s not just ok 2say no, it’s often necessary. (be LED, Prov. 3:4-5)
The truth? Expending ur best effort 2 obtain the “good opinion” of others does NOT make u Adaptable or Flexible…It makes u a Slave.
