Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”
Remember, when not too long ago we as a nation felt empowered and indivisible? We were the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth? Oh, how far we have fallen in such a short time. Our continued mounting ceiling debt renders us not feeling very wealthy even though most of our citizens live far above the standards of most others on planet Earth. And, our once powerful abilities to lead the world towards peace and democracy have been shattered by our current presidential administration seeking advice from another country’s president on how to get us out of a mess!…Oh, my friends these things should not be…And, the only way to turn them around is for America to once again bind together in our Faith in God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
But, sadly, we are living under an administration that promotes evil and discredits our Christian heritage…Without God, our nation will not be able to resolve its current problems and we will continue to witness its downfall. Yet, the Bible has many promises to those who hold steadfast in such times. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the LORD delivereth him out of them ALL.” (Psalm 34:19. ) As grim and dim as it is, we, as Christians and followers of Christ, still have HOPE. If we think about it, what better time than this to lead the lost and dying within our own nation to Christ? What better time to tell others about Jesus’ Resurrected Power to rule Supreme? Instead of focusing on all the bad, we need to start focusing on the added opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. We need to tell others about our Faith. We need to explain why Jesus is God manifested in the flesh (John 1:14) and the only NAME that will save us from our sins and reconcile us back to God. “At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is LORD!”
No longer can we just assume that people know and understand who Jesus really is…He is God…He is Redeemer…He is Savior…Yes, he was a babe born in Bethlehem over two-thousand years ago, but He is the Presence of God dwelling among us…There is NO other way to have life after death than through Faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
So, this next week, instead of focusing upon all the ills and issues of our land why not take the opportunity to share your Faith in Christ? If every Christian shared his and her faith to win one soul to Christ then our nation would be returned to God’s favor as it once benefitted.
To our God be the Glory in the name of Jesus! Amen…
Remember, God Loves You!
