The Wounds of Jesus, Part 2
Imagine a sheep trying to live in the wild without a shepherd. Picture it standing alone in the forest: lost, wandering, defenseless and blind to all surrounding dangers. That is a picture of us apart from Christ.
Politics is one of the most polarizing and divisive topics in our culture. People have political affiliations and opinions, and they often enjoy sharing those opinions - sometimes loudly. As believers, we need to remember that God also has an opinion. God has told us how He expects us to relate to our governing authorities and the attitude we are to have regarding those in political power. During the two middle weeks of September, you're going to hear Stephen's brand new series called "Above Politics and Parliaments." Our featured resource this month is a lesson from that series called "Silencing The Critics." It's our prayer that this series will help you think biblically about politics and your relationship with those whom God has placed over you in civic government.
