Biblical Truths and Values

For am I now trying to win the favor of people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ. Galatians 1:10 

My husband and I live by God's Word - His truths and His principles. Our lives are governed by biblical values. Every decision we make is reflected and found in God's Word. Are we perfect? Oh golly no and I’d be the first to admit that. But we still believe and abide by God’s word. We believe the authority of Scripture, the clarity of Scripture, the necessity of Scripture, and the sufficiency of Scripture. We believe all the words in Scripture are God's words, the Scripture is true (inerrant), and the written Scriptures is our final authority. I am forever grateful and cherish God's written word. The Scripture contains everything I need to trust and obey Him. It is the road map and compass for life. 

Not everyone believes what I believe. I am fully aware of that. I have also come to accept the reality that many will also misunderstand our words, actions and intentions. Because sometimes standing up for truth or speaking about harsh realities may be unpopular. However, at the end of the day, I can stand with conviction behind what we say because it's found in Scripture. And most importantly, everything we say and do points to ONE PERSON and ONE CAUSE - Jesus Christ and for the furthering of the GOSPEL - the GOOD NEWS. 

In our current culture with social media, good or bad, everyone has a platform. Everyone has an opinion and everyone seems to want their voice heard. Truly, that is the beauty of our democracy, freedom of speech and freedom of religion. But we must remember when we share to please do so respectfully. We should also seek to hear and understand with humility and a willingness to learn from one another. 

We may lose some friends in the process. People may walk away from us. But if I am speaking God's truth according to the Scriptures, at the "end of the day," it's going to be okay. I'm not seeking the approval of man, but I live for Christ.
