Foundations For Our Future (Special 1)
Foundations for Our Future (Special #1)
by: The Reverened Dr. Jon Shuler
Those of you who have listened to me, or read me, for the last few months know something of my mind and my heart. It beats for the Lord Jesus Christ, his people, and his plan for the world. As a husband and father the well being of my family comes just after the Lord Jesus Christ. Then my love for and duty to you as the current Pastor.
But I am an American, and a proud one. Tuesday January 6th, 2021, has left me, as I suspect most, if not all, of you with a great sorrow in my heart. I never dreamed I would live to see such a day. I am saddened and ashamed.
Yet I belong to Christ Jesus, above all the things of this earth, and my response to these events must please him if I am to be faithful. What then can I do?
First, I can continue to pray for the well being of this nation, its leaders, and its people.
Second, I can be a reconciler, and not a divider.
Third, I can ask God to make me a “peacemaker.” (Matthew 5:9)
Those of us at Christ the King/Grace who love our Lord and our Country can make a difference. Will all of you join me?
