Heated gun control debates are all over the news and social media . . .
I may be a simple dreamer, but for me, Jesus is the answer. He always was, and always will be.
God’s love has the power to transform any life. I just saw the movie, “I Can Only Imagine” (a true story) which testifies to this. There are also countless other stories of convicts, drug addicts, gang members, and on and on who have been completely transformed by the love of God.Whether it’s a gun, a knife, or even our tongue… all these things can hurt or help society. Proverbs 18:21 says the death and life are in the power of the tongue.
The reason I’m more vocal about my faith rather than politics is because I truly believe that the heart is the root of all evil.
“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” -Jeremiah 17:9
Once a heart is changed, everything else eventually follows. God can take a heart of stone and remake it into a heart of flesh that is capable of loving. That’s why we must earnestly pray for the healing of our nation… and for those who would try to hurt others. They need Jesus. They need to experience the healing life changing love of God.
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” -2 Corinthians 5:17
Love one another daily, be kind in word and deed, and watch the world get brighter. Maybe not the whole world… but at least the little corner where God planted you. I try to remind myself daily that change begins with me!
Change begins with me!
I’m grateful for those who have a keen understanding of politics who can help formulate laws to protect us. I don’t know enough about the complexity of gun laws to comment on such issues. So I content myself with talking about Jesus and praying for our nation.
We may never find a perfect law for gun control to please everyone, but we can find perfect peace through Christ as we pray for the healing of our nation.
Receive His peace today and pray, pray, and pray some more. Thank you dear friends 🙏🏻
Blessings on your day!
