There are lots of things in the news this week. Things that trouble me greatly. Our President sits down with two men and the Vice-President for beer to discuss his inappropriate comments over an arrest. Unemployment is up even though the President says his nearly trillion dollar stimulus plan is working. Our country is sinking lower and lower and heading closer and closer to a socialist state. You don’t thnk so? Have you read the proposed healthcare bill?
So what’s a guy to do? You can get angry, you can move to another country (it would be Romania for me), you can call your elected officials and tell them what you think (I do regularly), or you can do what Jesus says to do. Pray. It is the most effective tool in getting the job done. Pray for your President to exercise godly wisdom, patience, strength, compassion and all the characteristics Jesus wants us to have. Sometimes it’s hard for God to get our attention. Sometimes we have to reach the bottom for us to see the light of God’s truth. Maybe you’ve reached that point and you fully embrace the truth of God’s Word and His instructions and biblical principles. I hope you don’t have to sink to the bottom before you realize the level of commitment it takes to be a Christ follower.
As a church, we are converted, but not committed. That’s not a good place to be.
