Responding to the Supreme Court's Ruling
Dear Sovereign Grace Church,
Yesterday we witnessed a very signigicant event in the life of our country. As you all are aware of, at this point, the Supreme Court's ruling regarding gay marriage, and the re-defining of marriage, will have significant implications on not only our country, but us as a church family (and individual Christians). There are, of course, many resources for us to consider and process online. The question is, with all that is being written about this event, it's implications, and what our response should be, what should we read? Who should we listen to? Of course, we want to consider first and finally the biblical perspective on these things and so I have included a short list of links that will direct you to articles that will serve to enable you to interact with friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers in a winsome and theologically informed manner. I could not urge you more emphatically to read these and work to understand what is being communicated.
These things certainly remind us that our hope is not in this world and it's ever morphing morality and legislation, don't they? Rather, they remind us that our hope is in our good and sovereign God who remains at work redeeming a people for himself through the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission remains the same, right? Let's continue to glorify God in all we do, primarily by making disciples who enjoy and declare the good news of Jesus Christ for the joy of all peoples.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
