An Antidote to A Nation In Trouble; God Has The Answer

The direction of our nation is terrifying! Can’t believe what people are fighting for… America is the home of the free! What will America look like when those fighting with impure motives win the battle? Scary to think about!

What are you fighting for? Be very careful the battles your fighting, you have to live with them! In fact, we all do! Our children’s children have to live with the fallout.

Sadly, the people fighting the wrong battle do not care about the generational fall out, they only care about themselves! What makes “me” happy! And… now!

Friends, we have to stop complaining about the direction our great nation is headed! We have to do something about it. I’m not saying argue with people to change their minds, that WILL NOT work! I’m not saying hand out a gospel track, I’m not saying go to church and come home. Nope, these things will not change the direction our country is headed.

We have to do the hardest thing, but also the most rewarding thing. We have to build relationships with people! We have to renew our heart and focus on Jesus! We have to be in continual prayer and asking God to show us how we can be a vessel for Him!

We have to STOP feeding our souls with “things”, “popularity”, “fame”, “bigger houses and more expensive cars”, “ease of life”, and begin feeding our soul with God’s love and find purpose and fulfillment in serving Jesus! We have to get out of ourselves and into God’s will, fully! Friends, during this time in history we CAN NOT be luke warm Christians! We must be hot, we must be on fire for Jesus!

We have to talk to our neighbors! We have to build relationship with our youth and show them the culture is empty and they are more fulfilled by Jesus and God’s people! Lost people need to see Jesus through us! People need to feel God’s love through us! This is the only thing that will change our nation! If all God’s people all around the world lives out the gospel message, our world would change! As individuals we have access to individual people and this seems small, but they find hope and lead others to hope! I’ve been blessed to see this play out in real life and it is the most rewarding aspect of living for Jesus! Seeing the Hope of Jesus spread!

Sadly, our vote matters very little in today’s society, because the same people fighting for the demise of America are manipulating our right as American’s to vote, by cheating the voting system! It’s scary!

Sooooo…. It’s time to get off your high horse and get out your boats…

Time to do what Jesus tells us and exemplified so perfectly in His word. We are called to be fishers of men! Lead them to Jesus through your actions motivated in Holy love, not through empty words! Words are empty, without purposeful intention behind them!

Let’s face it, we’ve become a selfish people, more so than ever before! And… we are more
more miserable and hopeless than ever before! The suicide rates are unbelievable! The anxiety and depression rates are off the charts! Being selfish, is actually the most miserable way to live! Interesting, but so very true!

Thankful Jesus is on the throne! This is a challenge to me and to you!

We have to save our nation, by getting right with God! It’s going to take an army, God’s army standing to fight! We have to fight a different battle, with different weapons, not the weapons of the world! We need to fight with God’s weapons! “The fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, patience, gentleness and self-control.”

Go make disciples of all men!

Mathew 28: 19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

2 Corinthians 10: 3-6 “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.”
