Do you know what we need to do in response to the Supreme Court decision on Friday? (Though this is really a symptom of a very sick culture that has shaken its fist at God, and a sad reflection of the state of much of the church that has not stood on God’s Word as it should.) For one, we need to build an Ark—a life-size Ark—as a sign to the world that God’s Word is true and the message of salvation is true. I thought of that as I visited the Ark construction site this afternoon.
We need to do more to contend for the faith, answer the skeptics who attack God’s Word, preach the gospel, make disciples, and do our best to win hearts and minds for the Lord. Hearts and minds change a culture and the problem with America is a heart problem! We need to call church and culture back to the authority of the Word of God and preach the gospel with increasing fervor. I truly believe the life-size Ark project, which will open next year, will be one of the greatest Christian outreaches of our day. Other than the Cross (the greatest symbol of the gospel/salvation message), I believe the Ark is the greatest symbol of salvation—a reminder of one door through which one must go to be saved:
Jesus said: “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9)
As I thought about the state of the culture and the Pandora’s Box that has been opened by the Supreme Court, I was reminded of Joshua's message to God’s people:
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
Let’s be like Joshua, who would not compromise God’s Word and was willing to be a warrior for the Lord.
