Reflections on Today’s Supreme Court Decision

As I am sure you all have heard or read by now, the United States Supreme Court ruled this morning in favor of same sex marriage in all 50 states. Read the decision here: http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-556_3204.pdf.

Here are a few thoughts of mine about this:

1. The supreme court is not the supreme being: God has and will always be the one in charge. We know from the Bible that in the beginning God created everything and he still lives today. The decisions of a court will never overrule the One that created all things.

2. No matter if we agree or disagree with the decision we should love all people. The old saying comes into play here, love the sinner, hate the sin. If we are to be Christians and Christ like we are to love everyone no matter what sexual orientation they are. But loving them doesn’t mean you have to like what they are doing or how they are living. You need to make sure they know that you care for their soul and you need to live out Christ in all ways. Throwing up signs and yelling at people will not make any difference.

3. Pray: today was the first day I have thought to myself, the end is near. I always know it, but from reading the comments on Facebook, to reading about shootings around the world. We as the people of God need to be in prayer for all the world. Not only the people we like but they ones we don’t. We have to be in consistent prayer, if we don’t then change will not happen. I do believe God can move in all situations, but prayer helps that along. If you simply go through life thinking all is good and not praying about nothing, then who is the first person you turn to in bad times, usually God. It is not a pick and choose relationship. As my pastor says, you need have all of God or none of God, choose God in this situation and all situations.

Final thoughts: Take it from someone that lived in this lifestyle. What you think is good now, isn’t. Don’t get blindsided by what the society thinks is right. God is the ultimate being and supreme court. I choose Him today and will continue to depend my relationship and faith in Him to the end of days!

“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:18 NIV
