Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Looking At All of Life in Light of Scripture

In my last two posts, I gave some quotes in regards to a biblical view of homosexual behavior and I urged readers to contribute to disaster relief due to flooding.

Within much of American Christianity, the current mood would support the second post (in regards to disaster relief), but would deem the first impolitic in some way. With so many other sins and problems in our culture, why should we make issue out of homosexual behavior?

Other Christians may be comfortable with teaching against homosexual behavior, but be uncomfortable with being urged to help others in a sacrificial way.

But I would point out that I did not raise either issue about which I've been recently blogging. Two of the top stories on the news yesterday were the flooding in the Midwest and homosexual marriage in California. Christians must be ready to minister to people, responding to the events of today with teaching from God's Word and action based upon this teaching. We must look at all events in light of God's Word so that our own thoughts will be challenged and we may grow in godliness, both receiving forgiveness from Christ and becoming more like Him.
