KING’S CROSS CHURCH exists to glorify God and enlarge His Kingdom by gathering regularly to proclaim and celebrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, yielding to the authority of God’s Word as illuminated by the Holy Spirit and summarized in the historic Christian Creeds and Confessions, partaking together of Christ’s presence in the Sacraments, providing opportunities to love and serve one another in Community, equipping the saints for Ministry to those who are lost and hurting, both locally and globally, and preparing them to cultivate Shalom (peace and well-being) wherever God calls them to serve.

Perhaps this is why C. S. Lewis placed such a premium on the exercise of courage when he wrote:

Saul starts well as the first king of Israel, but ends tragically and horribly. And in the throws of his personal and political meltdown the Holy Spirit uses him as a foil to highlight the sterling character and faithful behavior of David.
In the above verses we see a whiny, thin-skinned ruler who knows that his people will not follow him on principle and need to be bribed with promises of wealth and positions of power. David can offer his followers neither of these enticements, and yet his band continues to swell with men perfectly willing to suffer hardship and disgrace with David in the wilderness.
Sadly, the candidates for POTUS this year seem to resemble Saul much more than they do David, who was but a faint shadow of his greater son, Jesus. May the Lord raise up candidates and elected officials who fear no one but God, who bless when they are cursed, and are quite ready to suffer derision, disgrace and even death for the sake of righteousness.
