As this political cycle tries to tell you that your faith is nothing more than a political bent, don’t forget Jesus. As the media tries to tell you that your faith is nothing more than a stance on one specific issue, don’t forget Jesus.
In 2 Timothy 2:8-9, Paul says, “Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David, this is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained.”
Our gospel is Jesus Christ; being sent, living and teaching, dying for us, raising from the dead, and ascending to God’s right hand. God’s word is not chained by politics. God’s word is not chained by media. God’s word is not chained by education or location or race or bias or past sins. Christ came, Christ saves, His Kingdom is available to us.
Don’t forget Jesus.
