January 6, 2021 will be one of those days we will never forget. On that day a mob tried to overthrow the Capital of the United States. They failed but left a trail of destruction and death. It was a sad day for our country. Now I sit with this question, “Is God Pleased?”
When Jesus is Baptised by John in the Jordan River, a voice comes from the clouds saying, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” This marks the beginning of Jesus’ mission and the validation of him as the true Messiah.
These words made me wonder. Is God pleased with me? With you? Is God pleased with your country? Well, I’m sure I have disappointed God many times. I fall short. But I do struggle with these questions. What is it that God wants from us in this life? How do we respond to the tragic event on Jan. 6th through our voice and actions?
As John Lewis said, “Get in good trouble, necessary trouble.” I invite you to listen as I not only give a response to the events of Jan. 6th, but also suggest a way forward with God. Listen on YouTube and Spotify.
