    « Word on Wednesday | Living Faithfully »

    Good Wednesday to you,

     

    This past week we looked at an example of living faithfully that took place in Dallas, Texas. When police office Amber Guyger was convicted in the murder of Botham Jean, Botham’s brother Brandt offered grace and forgiveness to officer Guyger. He told her forgiveness from God was at hand, and what he and his brother would want most was for her to give her life to Christ. In an unprecedented move, he requested permission from Judge Kemp to give the convicted murderer a hug. She granted it. The judge left the bench and the courtroom, returning with a book in her hand and she offered her personal Bible to Guyger, suggesting she begin with John 3:16, encouraging the woman to take mustard-seed sized faith and trust God with the rest of her life. WOW. Tears flowed and hugs ensued. Justice was served (Guyger received a ten-year sentence), but forgiveness was offered and received. It was living faithfully in public places!

     

    As one might expect in our word today, the backlash against the judge was swift in coming, though she defends her actions of giving her Bible away to Guyger. Wanting to express my gratitude for living faithfully in public, I sent the judge a Bible to replace the one she gave away, with a note of gratitude. Wouldn’t it be great if every Christian who hears about this would do the same? Any interest in inundating the courts of Dallas with Bibles? If you are interested, here is her address:

     

    The Honorable Judge Tammy Kemp, 204th Judicial District Court, Frank Crowley Courts Building, 133 N. Riverfront Blvd (Lock Box 29), Dallas, Texas 75207, Phone (214) 653-5832

     

    I also mentioned an upcoming even sponsored by Coronado Men’s Connection. On November 18th, Dennis Prager will be speaking at the high school auditorium on “Why the Rational Bible,” a series of commentaries he is working on of the first five books in the Bible. Tickets are free, but limited. The Event is only being promoted locally until this Friday. If you want to attend, click here to register for your tickets. Once this is opened to the wider population, it will “sell out” before the day is over.

     

    Next week we will be looking at “Living Gratefully” through the narrative of the ten lepers healed by Jesus found in Luke 17:11-19. I hope to see you Sunday!

     

    Grace and peace,

    Pastor David
