They Can't Make Us
In California years ago, some students turned down the freedom to play basketball with bad grades in order to study harder. They were taught to consider athletics as a privilege after the hard work of excelling in the classroom.
In every city in the world today, what if we Christians turned down some legal freedoms and rights in order to pray harder and study our Bibles more? What if we consider our rights and freedoms and preferences as privileges AFTER excelling in wholeness and holiness?
They can make it legal. But they can't make us do it.
Let our holiness be the law of our hearts despite the law of the land.
Higher law. Higher calling. Higher King.
