The reality is that we all have the capacity to view the world through something other than the blood of Jesus. For some of us, that could be our racial heritage. For others, maybe it’s the state we live in or our identity as social conservatives. Whatever the lens we use may be, if it causes us to adopt an “us vs. them” mindset, it’s probably something we are elevating above our identity as children of God.
That means our priorities need to be rearranged. Let’s face it: Infighting and division are “luxuries” we can no longer afford in our end-time economy. Given the Supreme Court’s recent rulings, marriage is under renewed assault from coast to coast – and wherever marriage falls, religious freedom will be the next domino in line.
In short: We have some real enemies to fight, and they are not our flow Christian – nor our fellow men. Remember Ephesians 6:12: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
