THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Sometimes, when exercising faith in Jesus properly, we face a crisis decision.
Mary was sending in a resume.
She had two photos to use.
One was a glamour shot, the other was a plain shot with her glasses on.
She carefully laid down the glamour shot, with a sigh, and used the other one.
Her friend asked, “Why didn’t you use the glamour shot?”
Mary said, “Well, when I go for an interview, I don’t want them to think
2 Tim 4:1-5
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
Although same-sex "marriage" isn't officially legal in New York until July 24, some couples are already heading to local offices to apply for "marriage licenses."
When they do, there will be at least one less clerk willing to help them. Laura Fotusky, a committed Christian from Barker said that she "looked at her Bible" when the law passed "and knew what she had to do."
On July 21, Laura will be cleaning out her office--another victim of the clash over homosexual "marriage."
"I believe that there is a higher law than the law of the land," she wrote in her resignation letter.
"It is the law of God in the Bible. The Bible clearly teaches that God created marriage between male and female as a divine gift that preserves families and cultures... I cannot put my signature on something that is against God."
Like so many others in the war for marriage, Laura was forced to choose between her faith and her job.
Even if it meant losing her livelihood, she chose faith.
What a courageous and principled stand!
And what an embarrassment that New York leaders were too spineless to share it.

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Exercise faith in Jesus properly.
Stand on the WORD!
