“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Ephesians 2:10
Many believers in the Lord Jesus Christ today are bewildered, befuddled, and deeply perplexed as to how to respond to the overwhelmingly secularized culture we are living in. In our post-modern world, objective reality that has always been understood and accepted in our nation is now discarded and replaced by subjective opinions.
For example, just recently, President Biden’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who if confirmed by the Senate will be one of the most powerful individuals in our country, could not give a simple definition for the word “woman.” Not only this, but now basic and objective realities that have always been embraced by our nation since our founding, surrounding the family, life, marriage, and more are now being determined by the shifting winds of the culture instead of the unchanging truths found in the Word of God.
In this cultural upheaval that the American Christian now finds themselves in, it is of utmost importance that we do not shrink back and hunker down in our protected bunker as that is the easiest avenue to take. Our calling is not one of silence and passivity, but rather one of bold action, strength, and courage.
The Apostle Paul distinctly states in Ephesians 2:10, that we as believers are created in Christ Jesus, “to do good works.” God desires for us to do all we can to perform righteous actions in our land to cultivate a culture that honors Him. Doing good works certainly includes advocating for public policy that glorifies God, as many will be impacted by promoting righteous laws in our Commonwealth.
LET US PRAY…
Father, may we be determined to do good works in our Commonwealth, especially by advocating for public policy that honors You. Father, empower us to speak Your truth boldly, courageously, and intelligently to our culture without fear. Lord, we pray, that Kentucky and America will return to Your truth in every way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
