Real political action starts in the teaching ministry of our church and then flows outward from there—from our relationships with other members, to our families, our workplaces, and beyond.
I say this with the utmost honesty and vulnerability: as I consider the death of my earthly father my heart is forever thankful for the sovereign plan of my Creator, even in this.
None of us can be certain what our final moments will be like or what the next hour of our lives hold, but one thing we can be sure of is that God’s faithfulness will not let us down.
He won’t use His power to exert dominance over us, He uses His power to make us like Him, dispensing amongst us the very glory that merits His position of honor and authority.
At some point, we are going to have to address issues that we ourselves have difficulty understanding and adhering to, we will inevitably call people to be obedient to a standard that we ourselves fall short of, and we will give advice and instruction to our churches that we need a healthy dose of ourselves. But this shouldn’t cause us to shy away from preaching the Word of God in all its fullness.
