1. God is still sovereign. – Nothing happens outside of His “watch.” Isa 40:23 …Who brings the rulers to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth as vanity.
“If there is one maverick molecule in all the universe, then God is not sovereign. And if God is not sovereign, He is not God.” – R.C. Sproul
2. Don’t be shocked when the world acts “worldly.” – Christians should be the most “street smart” people in the world, since we know the true nature of man apart from God.
Rom 1:28 …And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do the things not right. | 1Cor. 6:11 …And such were some of you. But you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
3. Support, show what a Biblical Marriage should look like. – Marriage should make visible the “gospel reality of Christ’s love for the church and the church’s love for Christ” – Michael Lawrence.
Eph. 5:31,21 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
4. Prayerfully seek opportunities to “speak the Truth” … but IN LOVE!
Eph. 4:15 …But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.
“We are called to be the people of the truth, even when the truth is not popular and even when the truth is denied by the culture around us. Christians have found themselves in this position before, and we will again. God’s truth has not changed. The Holy Scriptures have not changed. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has not changed. The church’s mission has not changed. Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.” – Al Mohler
