Being Part of the Solution

The unfortunate truth is, the longer we enjoy any type of favorable situation, we begin to see it as something we deserve, a right which is owed us. On the eve of this 4th of July weekend Christian Americans throughout the country should spend some time in thoughtful consideration of our attitude towards these United States of which we are privileged to be called citizens.
We do well to ask ourselves, “Have we become so accustomed to the freedoms, opportunities and lavish prosperity which our country enjoys that we have come to expect these blessings which are unknown to most of the world?”

Many people are predicting a gloomy future for America. Anyone who has even read a short history of our country knows that there have been many perilous times which we have faced and overcome. For Christian Americans, our responsibility to our country is certainly not to criticize and complain, but to roll up our sleeves and be a part of the solution to our many problems. It is very evident that government programs, no matter how well planned and executed, will resolve the problems of the day. What our country needs are Christians living, talking and thinking like the One they profess as Savior and Lord.

Difficult times may be in the future. What an exciting thought that the all powerful God of heaven and earth will give us the opportunity to be a part of his solution.

Join us this weekend for one of our services. Celebrate America by recommitting yourself to living like a Christian each and every day!
