There has been many talk about Whitney Houston’s death and my prayers go out to the family at this testing time but in all of the commotion, what about Bobby Brown? Yes, I understand that he has made some mistakes and he will probably be villified by the world for the rest of his life for ‘contributing’ to Whitney’s death and he is facing the consequences for a lot of his actions but I had to ask myself, what should the Christians response be to Bobby Brown. It can be so easy for us as Christians to forget that some of us were sinners and it took God’s grace to come and rescue us.
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor 6:9-11)
Someone took time to share their faith with us, someone took time to give us that gospel tract, someone took time to bear with us while we was doing crazy stuff, someone prayed for us continually, someone had compasion on us when we was in our madness, someone listened to us while we was hurting inside and no-one knew about it, someone understood while we behaved why we did because of negative things that happened to us early in our life.
Lets pray for Bobby Brown as God’s hand is not too short that He cannot reach him even when to us, it may look hopeless. With God, all things are possible.
