WATCH OR LISTEN NOW!
Headlines across the nations have caused some to simply respond in shock to the injustices are being witnessed. So often we credit things to men and their schemes. God is picking at a wound that we as the Church refuse to heal. Part of healing me is hearing me and the conversation has started. Often times we have the wrong response to wounds. According to Jesus, it matters how we treat other people even when we may not necessarily fully understand the situation someone may presently be in. In his book, Blood Lines, Don Piper stated, “New laws will not change an old heart but the gospel will change the nations.” There are two distinct differences between simply pointing out the wrong or the injustices in a situation, and sharing the love of the Gospel. One is depending on our ability to make things right and the other trusts the Holy Spirit to do things in His order and in His timing.
The truth of the Gospel and the finished work of the Cross has power and it works no matter where you are or who you are speaking to, the Gospel works. God has a desire to carry about His will and His plans because they are good. Be encouraged as you hear the conversations that have so beautifully begun like an orchestra throughout different voices in the Body of Christ, and so much more.
