“We win!” These are the words I continue to hear from the mouths and fingertips of christians in this volatile political and social season.
What does that mean? What should we be saying?
Are we fighting on the right side of the battle lines? Are we fighting with or against God?
God began showing me what winning looks like. It doesn’t look like the American dream, an easy life, or the “right” political leader (as if one exists). Winning may look like loss. It may come as persecution. Winning may look like remembering the battle was won on the cross.
I fear christians are doing great harm to the watching world right now through social media posts and shares that incite an angry world.
How would Jesus have us respond and live during tumultuous times? You see, He lived during such times. We happen to live in a generation of mostly ease and little upheaval, so it’s jaded our outlook on the reality the rest of the world lives in.
It’s taken me nearly a year to arrive at where I’ve arrived with this post. A year of wrestling it out with God. I’m choosing the way of “be still and know that I am God.”
“Stop your fighting–and know that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.” Psalm 46:10
