Even though the Same Sex Marriage survey was lost from a Christian point of view, we must be aware that we live in a democracy and the majority of Australia has had its say. We need to respect the Australian democratic process, but it should motivate us to be more active and open about what we believe and why we believe in God approved marriage.
The best way to do that is to pray for our non-Christian friends that they might come to the Lord Jesus. The only way people will be convicted of the truth is to know the truth in their lives, by the Holy Spirit’s conviction.
Can I encourage all of us to be prayerful for our non-Christian friends, and respectful of their views. Take the opportunity to invite them to many of our Christmas services. Remember that God is always sovereign.
I would like to say a Big Thank You to everyone who has sent cards, well wishes and their prayers for my recovery. I am greatly moved by your graciousness.
Your Pastor & friend
