Yesterday I went to Grayson, Kentucky for a rally in support of Kim Davis, the Rowan County clerk who was jailed for her Christian beliefs.
I didn’t know what to expect as I prepared to go to the rally. Would there be a lot of people there? How much media coverage would there be? Would there be vocal protesters there? The best way to have my questions answered was to go and see for myself.
As soon as I got into town, I was overwhelmed by the turnout. When I saw the bumper-to-bumper traffic lined up as far as you could see on the interstate highway, I sobbed with joy to know that so many people would go out of their way to take a stand for Jesus Christ and his kingdom. I saw church buses from as far away as Virginia and Indiana. Many states were represented as thousands of people flocked to the little town of Grayson to rally around one of their fellow believers.
The media was well-represented. Local TV stations were there, along with at least three national networks.
There were some opponents to the kingdom, but they were few, and were relatively quiet. There was little there to spoil the revival-like atmosphere.
The highlight of the trip was to learn that Kim Davis had already been set free. In fact, toward the end of the event she was invited to the stage, where she received the biggest ovation of the day.
This was a good day in the on-going battle between Good and Evil. But let us not think for a minute that the fight is over. The two sides seem to be polarizing, and the spiritual warfare will continue. The church must continue to rally around the cause of Christ!
Are you up for it?
