Friends, could we put aside our differences, for just a moment? Lets forget about what we think is right or wrong, for a short time. Lets think about something a bit deeper than same sex marriage and whether or not Kim Davis was doing her job.
Why don't we think about the Jesus factor, for just a minute.
I've been thinking about this for a little while now and I felt I needed to examine myself and my beliefs. I am a Christian saved by grace. I am certain that I am on my way to Heaven. I also know that I fail God every single day. As I've watched the story of the Kentucky Clerk standing up for her beliefs I started thinking...What would I do for Jesus?
I think most mothers would lay down their lives for their children. I know for a fact, if I could save one of my children or grand children, by giving up my own life, I would do so. Without a doubt. I wouldn't have to think about it. I would just say, "Take me instead".
I love my husband more than my own life. I would step in front of him and take the proverbial bullet, to save him. Again, I wouldn't bat an eye... so...
Would I do the same for Jesus?
Would I willingly give up my freedom for Him?
Would I die for Him?
I would like to think I would, but in reality, do we ever really know until we are put in a situation like that? The Bible tells us that if we deny Jesus here on earth, so will He deny us to the Father. Do I really want Jesus to go to God and say, "Well, Dad, she didn't stand up for me, down there, so...". I do not want to have to give an account for that. I don't ever, on earth or on judgement day, want to hear someone say that I didn't stand up for Jesus!
So...as I watch the news and read the articles, I will continue to examine myself, and continue to study the Word, so that if ever the situation arises, I can truly say, without a doubt, I would stand up, or give my life, for Jesus, like Kim Davis has.
What would you do for Jesus, my friends?
