Stand Up for What is Right! #Election2016
Jesus spoke not only on religious matters, but also talked about fair wages, unjust trade, oppression of widows and the economic injustices and even corruption. Jesus always stood up for what was right! He still does.
Scripture declares, “But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats” (1 Peter 3:14). If you do the right thing – God will protect you and guard your life.
It is always right to …
- Protect life.
- Empower people.
- Help the less fortunate.
- Bless others.
- Promote honor and respect.
- Bring freedom.
Stand for what is right. You will be blessed. Others will be lifted up. Let me just say this: “If your opinion is different than God’s – he doesn’t have to change – you do.” As a Christian, standing up for what is right means standing up for what God stands up for! Don’t blend in. Stand up.
As Reverend William Barber declared, “We must shock this nation with the power of love. We must shock this nation with the power of mercy. We must shock this nation and fight for justice for all. We can’t give up on the heart of our democracy. Not now, not ever.” Shock this nation and stand up for what is right!
