Good morning on this Tuesday! Saturday's devotional spoke of what many seem to realize: that is both the good and bad of the end times. I'm glad so many of you are watching in these times, heeding Peter's warning to be sober and vigilant. These times do seem like the dimming of the house lights just before the curtain rises on the big show. The signs point to woe for those who do not yet believe or have rejected Jesus. On the other hand, as Pastor Adrian Rogers once noted, it is getting gloriously dark! The darker the world becomes, the more we look forward to the arrival of our Savior.
Why are we so concerned with what others are doing though? My friend from college married his boyfriend a couple of years ago. That doesn't affect my marriage, I ain't got one. The problem is in the Law. God gave us laws because disobeying them is bad for us. When our government stands in opposition to the Law saying, no, this is alright according to our Constitution, then we have a problem. People look to the government for a moral code, restrictions on how to behave, and how to do what is right. When God says this thing is sin, but our government says that it isn't, we have confusion in the ranks.
Fortunately, you and I are not here to judge behavior. We have good news: Jesus.Bucky
