In the coming days, events will transpire on the national and international scene that will test the credibility of those who profess to follow Jesus Christ. God will offer each of us an opportunity to reposition our credibility solely in the life and witness of the Lord.
It will be very tempting to become a parrot repeating the same lines of defense and excuse offered on all sides of these emerging cultural confrontations. The other option is to become a prophetic voice expressing the heart and will of God no matter what the cost. This choice will require courage and may dismantle some of our current relationships and alliances that were built upon the assumption that everyone would continue to move forward in lockstep parroting the same message.
Protect your voice. Allow God alone to craft your message. Your credibility is being tested.
