I can't remember a time when our nation was more divided than it is right now. There has been a concerted effort over the past 5 decades to arrest and imprison the Biblical principals upon which our nation was founded. It is an effort that has largely been successful and now we are starting to see the fruits born of that endeavor: racism, hatred, intolerance, class warfare, murder, abortions, religious persecution.
It is a dark picture. We do need to take an honest hard look at it. Why?
On one occasion, recorded in the Gospel of John chapter 6, a large group of dissatisfied followers of Jesus walked away.
"At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. 69 We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God. (Jn. 6:66-69 NLT)"
When life gets ugly and the challenges seem greater than you can bare you need to re-read these words spoken by Simon Peter: "Lord to whom would we go?" If you have a better solution for America than Jesus I would love to hear it.
We need to remind ourselves that this life is about HIM and not us! He is the answer to the division we see in America. The flag is a symbol of America. It can't unite our divided country but the Cross of Christ can. In Christ alone is the HOPE of all mankind. Our nation is in crises we need to lift up Jesus so our nation can see where hope is!
Where can we Go? Only Jesus can heal a broken nation. Take that message to your social media, your neighborhood, your school, your work place. Jesus is the answer.
