How Do We Make America Great Again?
Our forefathers claimed this nation for God. We need to re-claim it! Paul tells us how in 1 Timothy 2:1-4.
I. PRAY FOR AMERICA
The GROUNDWORK for the freedom we enjoy, has been laid over the past 228 years. We enjoy our freedom today, because of what our founding fathers, our fathers, our brothers & sisters, our sons & daughters, have done to get and preserve this freedom.
If we are going to see good come from America, we … the church, the called of God, God’s people … need to PRAY for America and our leaders.
II. LIVE RIGHTEOUS LIVES
If we want to change the way America is headed, we need to live our lives “in all godliness and honesty”. How do we do this? By living according to the standards set forth in God’s Word.
Sin has disgraced our nation. That’s something we can do something about. 1 Tim. 2:2 – “that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”
III. SHARE CHRIST
The unbelieving world is shouting out it’s message: The sad truth is … the Christians in America are the majority … BUT … we are doing very little to speak out as a witness for the Lord.
God expects us to use the freedom that our founding fathers made possible … to be a witness for Christ in this sinful world we live.
If God lives in you … He ought to show through … and the lost and dying world around us out to see Him in us. The only hope for America is Jesus
When our nation, and Christians, cease to look to Jesus as Lord, we will cease to be blessed by God.
