Here we have begun a new year. It got started out on the wrong foot, like what happened at the capital. What a big mess and disgrace for our country. People died, things were destroyed, this is not the way we as a country act. Whether you were a Trump person or a Biden person, yesterday is gone. We can’t change all the fighting and hatred that took place. Are you ready to become one nation under God again? Not as a Republican or Democrat, but as people who love their country and want peace.
A house divided cannot stand. It will fall. The virus isn’t getting any better. There’s not even enough vaccine for the people. There is fear on every hand. We’ve never seen the country in the shape it is in. May God bless America again, but we must repent and turn from our wicked way. We need to let God change us so we can be the nation we once were. What do we want for our children? Things will never be the same as it once was. Our churches won’t be the same. My hope is that the churches will get on fire for God and win souls for Jesus.
The bible tells us that where this is no vision people perish. The church has sat too long. It is time for the church to awake out of sleep. Preachers have lost their zeal, their peace and even their joy. People are to preach good news to the meek, bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive and opening of the prison to those that are bound. Isaiah 61:1-3. That’s what God has called us to do, and we will stand before God and give account of the deeds we have done.
God has made us all able-bodied ministers. Church we have work to do. The song writer tells us “Bind us together, Lord, bind us together; Bind us together with love.” For we are one body. We don’t like change, but I pray that we allow God to change us and make us what we ought to be. We truly are our brother’s keeper.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
