My Thoughts on this 4th of July Weekend!
Years ago, Dr. Vance Havner said, “Living in America anymore is like living in an insane asylum run by the inmates.” Vance Havner the great evangelist died in 1986. What would Dr. Havner think about the world we live into today? Alexis Tocqueville a diplomat from France visited America in the 1800’s. Here were his thoughts about this “Young America.” “America is great because she is good; when America stops being good, she will stop being great.” President John Adams said, “It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.”
The Bible says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn” (Proverbs 29:2).
My prayer is that Believers in America will raise God’s Standard. I pray that God will make us that shining city on a hill, “You (that is believers) are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Mathew 5:14). – Let’s be a City on Hill Raising God’s Standard and being a light to a dark world. Let’s get back to being good. Our country cannot be good and immoral at the same time. That my friend is insanity. Let’s Raise the Standard , Believe in God and tell people that Freedom is in Christ and it was paid for at the Cross. Remember, “when America stops being good, she will stop being great.”
Happy 4th of July and be a Firecracker for the Lord! If you have a prospect that you would like me to visit then give me the name and contact details and I will visit them. I would also be glad for you to go with me.
We are Blessed People! As Jabez would say, “Lord, Bless Us Indeed.”
