I woke up today with such confusion and disappointment. Hardly effective words to describe my reaction to what is becoming a part of the daily news cycle in this country.
We say and sing “God Bless America”. All I’m asking is, didn’t He? Perhaps He did and we said “no thank you”. And now as the morality of our society goes, so too does our country. And Romans 1:28 prevails:
“And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”
Now is the time for the Church to rise and unite in the Spirit of God, come out of our comforts and safety, seek to know God and to make Him known. The Church must push past the societal cries of intolerance and bigotry, accept the words of Jesus that we would be hated as a result, and humbly and lovingly live, speak, and lead the truth of 2 Chronicles 7:14:
“if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
