Making conscious decisions as Christians…

This is a great reminder for me today.  May you be blessed, as well.

“As members of churches we are also members of other groups and institutions – political parties, economic organizations, regional and national associations.  Each of these constituencies has its vested interests, its value systems, and its authority figures.  We cannot deny our participation in these groups; in fact, it is of the utmost importance that these memberships be acknowledged, lest we become unconsciously possessed by them.  But the challenge before us as followers of Jesus Christ is to make conscious decisions as Christians, honoring our commitment to him above the claims and assumptions of every other authority.
