In light of all that is going on in the United States and the world with things such as COVID-19, the police brutality that led to the death of George Floyd and countless others before him, and the ensuing protests, both peaceful and violent, The Chapel at El Bethel stands with God. While it is our constitutional right as citizens of the United States to express ourselves through free speech, and while protests are needed at times, we condemn the violence that some have chosen to use. We believe the solution to all of our issues lies with our God and that His wisdom, found in the following scriptures, can be the light to guide us through word and deed during these times.
John 13:34 – “I give you a new command: Love one another, Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Micah 6:8 – “Mankind, he has told each of you what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
What needs to take place in the United States and the world cannot be legislated. A change in policy won’t do it all. What is needed only comes through a changed heart when we open ourselves to God and the Holy Spirit as we allow Jesus to come in. Join in with us as we do our part individually and corporately to help restore all that God says that we can have, all that he says is rightfully ours, and all that has been laid to the side.
