We Christians are in a battle of good and evil, right versus wrong. Even Christians who know the truth are acting like the 'world' many times and caving in to what they know in their hearts is not right. Our media saturated society makes it seem like conservative Christians are mean, hateful, terrorists, homophobic, islamaphobic and the bad guy. It breaks my heart to think how misled the world is becoming. But hey, no surprise there, when we allow a President to try to divide us instead of unite us.
Our job as believers is to love. None of us is perfect. We are to pray for our enemies. We are to pray for these people who think because we believe a certain way it is hate. We are to pray for those who disagree with us. We are to pray for those who label us hateful just because we stand for truth and love this country and care about national security and Israel. Satan has done an excellent job deceiving millions of people and his trickery is entering mainline churches too. This is why it is ever so vital to stay saturated in God's word and know the truth.
Our job is to pray and pray some more. Stay away from too much media or it will make you angry. Spend more time in God's word and less watching news. Ask God to give you a heart to love the unlovable. Above all pray for those who have authority over us to be transformed and to know Jesus.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus there is no one I hate. I confess my anger at the lies the enemy tried to spread. Lord Jesus some I love are being captivated by the enemy. Protect them Lord. Above all help me share God's love in these perilous times. In Jesus' name. Amen.
