Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message we’re going to search out God’s always protective, law abiding, order maintaining, justice bringing, life saving, lawbreaker busting heart through the vocation of a police officer.

“[Love] always protects…”
1 Corinthians 13:17, NIV

“Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it’s God’s order. So live responsibly as a citizen. If you’re irresponsible to the state, then you’re irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible. Duly constituted authorities are only a threat if you’re trying to get by with something. Decent citizens should have nothing to fear. Do you want to be on good terms with the government? Be a responsible citizen and you’ll get on just fine, the government working to your advantage. But if you’re breaking the rules right and left, watch out. The police are not there just to be admired in their uniforms. God also has an interest in keeping order, and he uses them to do it. That’s why you must live responsibly—not just to avoid punishment but also because it’s the right way to live.”
Romans 13:1-5, MSG

“The reality for a police officer is that we are considered the bad guy 90 per cent of the time (at least it feels that way sometimes).”
