Oh, America, America
Oh, America, America! "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace--but now it is hidden from your eyes." (Luke 19:42a) How He longs to take us under His wing like a hen gathers her chicks. (Luke 14:34) Jesus Christ is the answer to all of our problems!!! At this incredulous time in our country, what with all the "downturns" and such, I am in awe of all seemingly good solutions and ideas about how this country can turn around. But in God's economy, these ideas will be shown for what they are. He won't even allow them to work so perhaps in frustration, we might cry out to Him. We have only the Truth on which to rely and it is only the Truth that can set us free! 401k's have turned out to be a false god. The stock market and all sorts of funds and annuities have turned out to be false gods. Mutual funds, smutual funds! Turns out the rock in America was sinking sand. Ten years ago, I would have been right there with "them" easily solving all of the world's problems with worldly solutions. But by God's grace, not anymore. "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness!" Christians, it's time to "Christ up" and reveal His glory to a very lost nation. Start where you are! Your home, neighborhood, and community. Invite people to your church. The only way things are going to change is by leading people to Christ, one soul at a time. He is the answer to every problem!!!
