Last February, we mourned the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative stalwart who fought the reckless abuse of judicial power. We watched as President Obama nominated a liberal judge and we grew anxious as polls and pundits pointed to a likely victory for Hillary Clinton.
But, this week, we have cause for hope.
Our God saw fit to grant an unexpected victory – a president who, though flawed, is sympathetic to our values. He also saw fit to work through President Trump to see the nomination of a judge who, from all appearances, fits the mold of Scalia. Whereas the Court seemed poise to tilt irreparably to the Left, we now have reason for optimism with a Court that is evenly balanced – with the opportunity to move it closer to our Founders’ intent on down the road.
Yet, notice how our God works.
Over the last year, God used the actions of U.S. Senators who stood firm in their conviction to NOT confirm Merrick Garland. He then used the actions of believers just like you who pounded the pavement, gave of their time and treasure and worked hard to elect a president who would appoint the right kind of justice. He used the actions of voters from around the country who demanded change. Finally, God used a man who, just a few short years ago, few could imagine would ever be used in a mighty way to act on behalf of our values.
My friends, our God works through action. While He does not need us, He often chooses to use our prayers and our actions to accomplish His means.
As we kick off our efforts at the Family Policy Alliance of Georgia, I am encouraged to see engaged, thoughtful and active believers throughout our state. I am encouraged to see so many of you who are prayerful and eager to work glorifying our Savior in the public square. And I am hopeful that our actions will transform our state to a place where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
Together, we can take action to see this vision become a reality. I am looking forward to partnering with you – with hope and boundless energy – to glorify our King.
In His Service,
P.S. The Gorsuch nomination is critical and we need your help. Please contact your U.S. Senators to urge them to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Visit our Action Center to get their contact info and reach out to them today.
Moving closer to the edge of the cliff
2016 will be a critical year for your family and your faith. In so many ways, our nation is moving ever closer to the edge of the cliff – a cultural, political and spiritual cliff.
As followers of Christ, it’s our duty to trust in our Lord, remain faithful and engage in our system of government – to ensure pro-family Americans seize the opportunity to back away from that cliff. We need to band together with like-minded believers to protect our loved ones, our religious freedom and the sanctity of life – for ourselves and our families. We can do that in legislatures across the country and at the ballot box throughout the year.
