THE NEXT STEP
As you are led by God’s Spirit, use the influence that God has given you to take a stand for righteousness in your community. Reach out to those around you with love, mercy, understanding and servanthood. After all, what does our God require of us? “Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly…” (Micah 6:8).
These are days when people are afraid, confused and needy. What better opportunity for the Church of Jesus Christ to reach out more than ever with His love – to lead people to salvation, and to meet both spiritual needs and practical needs as well.
Whatever your actions, please understand this absolute truth: Politics will never usher in or establish the Kingdom of God! That happens only when His people invite and welcome His Kingdom presence and rule in their midst, and live by its requirements.
So whether you march or not, take every opportunity to share the love and message of Jesus with others. He is the only One with the power to transform the human heart – and cure the rage, bitterness, hate and hopelessness.
Let us rise up, brothers and sisters! When sin and darkness is abounding, grace will much more abound! We have our marching orders, so let us fall to our knees and see His Kingdom come and His will be done – to the glory of the One who deserves it all!
Bowing our knees to Him,
Dr. Frank and Wendy Parrish
