Stand tall, my brothers and sisters in Blue!
The thumbprint of God is on you!
In the beginning, God created mankind in his image. Now, thousands of years later, he is still molding each one of us into unique human beings. And each one of us reflects attributes of God in a different way.
You, my dear brothers and sisters in Blue, have the imprint of God’s justice stamped on your heart. My son, David Glasser, who was a Phoenix Police Officer before he was killed in the line of duty had ‘Justice” etched on his soul. It was who he was. One of his favorite verses was Micah 6: 8, “He has shown you, O Man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
God created justice. It’s his voice you are hearing in your mind when you are deciding between right and wrong. You may have been calling this your conscience…..so, who created your conscience? That’s his voice.
You feel the passion he placed inside of you as you work hard to replace what’s wrong with the world with what’s right.
You feel the fire that God created inside of you – the need to protect the innocent from the evil ones. One of Davey’s driving motivations was to work hard with his brothers and sisters in blue in order to take the evil people off of the streets so that kids and families could have a safer place to live.
God speaks loud and long against the wicked all through his Word. He curses the house of the wicked. He punishes them. He does not rescue them. He does not tolerate the wicked and those who love violence.
That’s how God feels about the wicked, my brothers and sisters in Blue. Does that sound like you?
God’s thumbprint is all over you!
The wicked in our world no longer hear God through their conscience because they have filled their minds with the lies of our culture. They believe the lies of our media. They are listening to the lies they tell themselves in order to rationalize their behavior and blame others.
Seeing you on the street reminds the wicked that there is justice in the world. There is a right. And there is a wrong.
The wicked are reminded that they are wrong when they see you. And they don’t like being reminded. Some of them resort to violence – it’s their language.
Unfortunately, we lose some battles. My broken heart reminds me of that constantly.
But we will not lose the war.
God has already claimed victory and he has the final say.
Miss you, Davey.
