Shiloh Membership Broadcast Message

From Pastor Anthony Parrish

Praise God Shiloh the 2020 Presidential Election has finally made It’s choice. However, it’s not surprising that the Incumbent is not willing to accept truth.  

Since his comments are to gender strife, the word tells us in Rom. 12:19 “to avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”

 We must not forget that this nation is deeply divided. Notice, that over 70 Million citizens decided that a failure to acknowledge that under COVID-19,10 million people affected and over 240,000 deaths; systemic racism and millions still unemployed; is alright with them. I can’t explain it, however it is not our job to explain but to espouse the love of the Lord. 

 I am reminded that our responsibility as Disciples is to cultivate love and remember “how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”  We trust that those who know the Lord will join in with their prayers for a national effort of healing, restoration, togetherness and rebuilding of a nation, which was founded under God. 

We must strive as recorded in Ephesians 4:13, “to come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”

This 3 & ½ years of doubt and disappointment is one that I believe has not been pleasing to God. We should not forget that the God that we serve is still in control. So let us be reminded not to take our eyes off the Lord and trust what Jesus has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

We thank God for what can be a new beginning.
