Over the last two days I have had the honor to spend time with three of our Texas State Representatives. I was with two them during the Texas State Prayer Breakfast yesterday in Austin. Today I had lunch with the third here in Arlington.
I'm impressed. Each of them revealed an underlying trait of humility and servant hood to the people of Texas. These are godly men. They love the Lord. They desire for Him to be glorified through their public and private lives. They are faithfully seeking God's wisdom as they make crucial, life-changing and hard decisions in Austin.
I won't share who, but one of them exhorted me to get out the word to each of you to contact your legislators and NOT just for the purpose to express your opinion or to encourage them to vote for this or that. Call your legislators - encourage them, stick by them, tell them that you know the decisions are hard and whether or not they make a decision which is popular or not - that you will stand behind them with prayer. These three men are sincerely seeking God's will and it is not always easy to discern that "will" over the sounds of public opinion, unfolding crisis or our own reasoning.
We elected these representatives to represent us, but first and foremost they are to represent and honor God. Let's pray for them. Stand behind them. Walk with them as together we seek His face.
