The Price of Our Faith!

12/12/2019 All day

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” – Phil 4:19 (NIV)

Sometime back there was a wedding magazine, White, based in Australia which was forced to shut down. Its troubles started when it was asked to promote a shot of a gay couple in one of her glamour pages. The owners, Luke and Carol Burell, refused. Word went out and soon almost all the advertisers were fleeing in droves.

“Like many people we have had to reflect on our beliefs,” said the couple in a farewell message. “We have no desire to create a social, legal or political war.” Prior, elsewhere in the US, they had been a Christian couple who were asked to bake a cake for a gay couple. The couple refused and the matter went into a long drawn out costly legal battle.

Sometimes our faith may put us into those situations where we have to make a hard choice. More so, in this age where laws are increasingly being passed contrary to what the Bible teaches. One thing which is clear in these situations is that our God is the ultimate judge and provider. If we have been looking up to him we should of course not worry. Where even we find this couple having to shut down the business they love, there is a bigger God able to look and provide for them in all situations.

Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that as your word truly says I may look up to you in all situations.
