Hope for Our Nation. Times are changing!. If we would just _________________. The problem is worse than it seems. Americans biggest need at this hour is a spiritual one. Christian busyness cannot make it right. America needs not another American revolution but a Jesus revolution.
worse than it seems.
One reason for the deadness of Christianity is believers are too often gloomy spiritual persons devoted to principles and beliefs.
On the other extreme, some radical versions of Christianity can become confused with causes, in this line of thinking Christianity becomes about action.
Discipleship is not about causes, principles, beliefs and the things one does, it is about personal, passionate devotion to Jesus; and to the things he was passionate about.
While God calls some to go to faraway places, he also calls some to stay, and all their work will be holy, good and if rooted in communion with God, truly radical.
And so, dear brothers and sisters,[a] I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him…
…Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
When we become passionate about our relationship with Jesus our lives will be marked by true and spontaneous creativity.
The future of our nation and the hope for our nation will be determined by what Christians will or will not do with Jesus.
