Jack Phillips, a born again Christian says he is not changing his store policy, regardless of picket lines and petitions and we know God is very pleased of his courage. Jack Phillips obviously realizes one day he will have to stand before God and if he yields to humanity that opposes God's Word, he could lose his soul, eternally. We also know He realizes if it was not for Jesus Christ, he would not be very blessed to own a bakery and create beautiful cakes. Therefore, for Him to stand strong in the midst of this national controversy empowers us to continue to stand up for complete righteousness, no matter who hates us.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, it may seem very hard for us right now, but God is watching us and recording everything we say and do. This is the time in our country when God is allowing those whom claim to love Him to face controversy. He wants to see how many people are going to stand up for His Kingdom, although they are hated by many unbelievers. Do not ever think we are alone when people offend us for stand up for God's Word, because God's angels are everywhere we go and they protect us from Satanic forces. Yes, we endure a lot of persecution, but we must remember the scripture found in Galatians 6:9 that says, ' And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.' God left us scriptures to strengthen us in the time of trouble. Here is another one, God told us in 2 Cor. 4:8, 'We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair'. Those two scriptures we are to remember while demonic forces are rising up against God's Kingdom.
