Having an Agenda

Standard

Devotion:  Matthew 28:19-20

                  An agenda.  Everyone has one.

Wearing his agenda; a young man’s shirt said, I’m gay and I’m educated.  He was so close to me that I didn’t get to read the rest of the shirt. The very next day, while flipping through a well known magazine for women; I saw a full add picture of a guy sitting on a couch, with his guy friend’s head in his lap.  The week before; a local school system decided to fully push this same agenda in the form of a book, upon elementary school aged children.

The next two paragraphs were reported by WFXB on the subject of the book called Jacob’s New Dress.

“A teacher raised concerns about the transgender-validating book, Jacob’s New Dress, at a school board meeting. The book celebrates a young boy who wears dresses to school, and it stigmatizes boys who urge their peers to wear boys’ clothes. After lawmakers in Raleigh heard the concerns, the book was removed from the “anti-bullying” curriculum — but it was replaced with Red: A Crayon’s Story, which focuses on a red crayon that believes itself to be blue, reports WFXB.”

 “The purpose of our elementary schools is to teach writing, reading, and arithmetic, not to encourage boys to wear dresses,” Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of NC Values Coalition, said in a statement.  Schools should be focused on helping young children to achieve the building blocks of learning, not indoctrinating them in progressive social values.”
 What are Christians to do?  How are we to respond?
Gays accuse Christians of trying to push our agenda on them. The “Christian agenda” invites change. “If any man be in Christ; he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things become new.”  Our message is based upon; “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16  Now that’s a powerful message.
      For Christians; It should not be a matter of tolerance. We       should not tolerate what God opposes.
      Leviticus 18:22 says: “You shall not lie with a male as with a       woman. It is an abomination. “

Christ followers are to love the sinner and hate the sin.  In love we are to share “the Way, the Truth and the Life.”  No man comes to the Father but through Christ.  Go and tell the truth to your city counsel, to your churches, out on the highways and byways.  After having done all; “Stand and see the salvation of the Lord.”

Prayer in Motion:

Lord Jesus, help me to always tell the truth in love. Give me courage to stand against the indoctrination of our precious children with the transgender message, or for that matter any  message that comes against You.  We are the people called by Your Name.  May we humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways.  Then you will hear from heaven and forgive our sins and heal our land.  In Jesus Name.  Amen
