“The Emperor's,” they answered. So Jesus said to them, “Well, then, pay the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor, and pay God what belongs to God.”
Jesus offered this answer in the presence of both Roman and Jewish officials looking to implicate him. He however offered an answer which is very relevant in our world today. In as much as we are believers and live by the laws of God, there are the laws of “Emperors” which affects both our physical, emotional and spiritual lives. Obeying these laws are paramount but we must stand up for what is righteous and defend what is just. We must fight through prayer because our God is mighty and he has mandated us to cause change in the land. Rise against evil, be light to show the way and salt to garnish the earth.
Give us courage O Lord to rebuild the walls of our nation and to become leaders ordained by you. Boldness to establish your ways and strength to stand and not faint. In Jesus Name.
