As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.— 1 Peter 4:10
For the past couple days I promised to mention what I’m doing this weekend. I’m traveling six hours in my car to Louisville, Kentucky. I’ve never been there. I’m going there for Bobby Lee. He lives in Pennsylvania now. He was born and raised in Louisville, the “proud” home of the only remaining baby murder center in that state.
Two years ago eleven brave Christians allowed themselves to be hauled off to jail in a similar Mothers Day protest. You can read all sorts of good information on it at the Operation Save America website. I don’t think our plan is to get arrested this time, but who knows. And if I am arrested for exercising my First Amendment right to tell everyone in the world that we need to stop turning the mothers and fathers of America into murderers then so be it. I’ll become acquainted with Paul and the boys gospel path from 2000 years ago. Nothing wrong with that.
So … I need your help. I need you to pray. And I need you to pass this epistle along to a friend.
Pray. The verse I quoted above is in a portion of Peter’s epistle that begins,
“Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin.”
Peter continues, “That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you.”
I am going to Louisville to be a good steward of the manifold grace of God with my Christian friend Bobby Lee. There are few better ways in America today to “suffer in the flesh” than to preach the gospel in public.
Thank God the stained glass fortresses of the West are burning to the ground. In the past couple centuries we’ve filled them with materialists — with weak willed men and women.
If the people in churches are Christians they are the ones described in Hebrews as only capable of digesting milk.
