God is Just – Pastor Shea Cutshaw

Posted by on Oct 18, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

If you’ve been watched the news or have been on social media over the last week, then you’ve heard a lot in a short time about the Ford-Kavanaugh hearings. Everyone has an opinion on this issue. Even within my own social media news feed, I’ve seen opinions from people all over the spectrum. I would agree with some commentators that this is a historical time in our nation, but I would also agree, with the countless others, who have said this is a dark time. This has caused a lot of division within our nation, and as I read from different Christians, even division within our Church sadly. Within all of this though, I heard one thing that brought so much hope to my soul. It was from Senator Jeff Flake when he addressed Brett Kavanaugh. He said this,

“I would just urge my colleagues to recognize that in the end we are 21 very imperfect senators trying to do our best to provide advice and consent; and in the end there is likely to be as much doubt as certainty going out of this room today. And as we make decisions going forward, I hope that people will recognize that.”

He continues by saying,

“And in the rhetoric that we use, and the language that we use going forward, that we’ll recognize that there is doubt. We’ll never move beyond that and just have a little humility on that front.”

That brought hope to me because I was reminded that while we are imperfect, God is perfect (Romans 3:23.) That we need to move forward with humility, just as Christ spoke and was humble (Mark 10:45); and that while we as people might make rulings that to some seem unjust, God is just (Psalm 92:15.)

At the end of eternity, we will stand before the perfect judge. He will hold us all accountable for our actions and the only thing that will matter at that time is whether or not the blood of Christ has covered us (Acts 20:28), sanctified us (Psalm 23:3), and continued to work in our lives (Romans 12:1-2.)

So how should we as believers respond to everything happening? Well, while we have our opinions, we do not know the truth. What we do know though is that Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Ford, and all Republicans and Democrats are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), and therefore they deserve the respect as created beings in that image. We should be a people praying not for them to make political decisions that we want, but that they would come to a faith in Christ alone that secures there soul for eternity.
