Got a knack or need for Religious Freedom? You’re not alone! Jesus foretold there would be haggling between brothers and sister, friend and foe, and even those who should be first would be last to inherit Grace.
Take a minute to contemplate what Pope Francis has to say about being complacent while serving those in need. “More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving.” – Pope Francis
“All of you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desire and thoughts. Like the rest, we were objects of wrath. But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:3-6 NIV)
The Holy One maneuvers throughout all seasons. Clamoring, Colliding, and Chastising the rich as well as the poor in faith. So that in the end of times there will be divine Security, merciful Magistrates, and nourishment for the Humbled in Faith.
