The answer must be someone, not just something, because the issue involves someone – God where are you? Jesus is sitting there beside us in the lowest places of our lives. Are we broken? He was broken, like bread for us. Do we cry out that we can’t take it anymore?
He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Does he descend into all of our hells? Yes he does. Every tear we share becomes his tear. He may not wipe them away yet, but he will. He’s what we really need.
Should we face the legalisation of euthanasia, our response to those suffering needs to be of greater awareness and compassion. Please continue to pray for the end of life choices legislation due to be debated in August in Western Australia.
At this time we await the report from the expert panel assigned to examine the right to freedom of religion. We believe with these freedoms, comes the ability to mutually respect each other.
It is easy to begin to pit yourself against someone who disagrees with you, however we all need to have value for people whose view we oppose. With the recent changes to the Marriage Act we find ourselves in a position where we need a special law that grants protection to hold and express our beliefs without fear of punishment. Please continue to pray for the restoration of these vital freedoms, that allow Australian individuals free will to express the faith of their choosing.
Australian Christians will always aim to fill MP seats in the Upper House because these are the positions of influence, where Christian voices are desperately needed. We need to be an influence where legislation is debated and voted upon, Christian voices for values must be present.
