Have We Forgotten?

It has been awhile since I wrote something on here and the reason is it has been hard to see what is going on around me in my country and not get upset and sometimes just out right mad.  Having served for 21 years of my life in the United States Navy, I honestly cannot believe the road I see my country on.  I never thought I would live in a country where right is wrong and wrong is right.  I feel like I am in the “Twilight Zone” sometimes with what I see and hear.

Now this is not going to be a political blog or rant, because politicians cannot get us out of the mess we are in.  While they are part of the reason we are in this mess, it is not all their fault.  God always has called on His people to be the leaders in all areas of life and to be out front when it comes to rising above evil.  He calls His people into a time of fasting and praying in order to revive our hearts to His calling on our lives.  Sadly we Christians have coward in the corner and retreated into closets and caves instead of being that light on the hill that Jesus says we are.  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:14-16

We should be outraged with a righteous anger over a government that tramples the Word of God and the Constitution that our Nation was founded on.  We should stand up for those without a voice in the womb of their mother (why in the world should the most dangerous place to be for someone is the womb of their mother?).  We should be standing up and helping the poor, the widows, the orphans.  Why?  It is in the Word of God.  Have we forgotten our call to be “Christ-like?”  Have we forgotten the call to do unto the least of these?

I guess I should simply ask “Has America forgotten God?” and have Christians forgotten that Jesus really did come to this Earth and paid the penalty for our sins.  Not just ours alone but for every man, woman, boy and girl ever born or that will be born.  Have we forgotten Jesus?

Let me encourage you today to look to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith.  Don’t look for man to fix your problems, because man has no answer.  Look to the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.  He is the answer.  Let’s be the people God has called us to be.  Christian, get up and put on the whole armor of God every day.  You are not on a play ground; you are on a battle ground.  THIS IS WAR!  You are called to be a good soldier and a good soldier follows orders.  So get out of your cave where you have been hiding and report for duty.  The Captain of the Lord’s Army is waiting on you.
