So, what do I really mean when I say pray for our country? I mean pray for the people in it, just like you would the people of the church. Realize the people of the country are what make the country, not the land we actually live on. Without faith in God I don't know how anyone could not live in fear. Terrible things are happening to kids everyday, people are expressing their selfish desires more and more, and corruption is being exposed left and right. This is a scary place to live if you think about it. The only thing that can keep us sain is our faith in God.
I wonder what God thinks of our country. I wonder how much pain He deals with every day seeing the pain we put each other in.
Where is the church being the church to the people of our society? So many are just isolating themselves and trying to bring people into their building for a service rather than going out and being where the people are...Jesus was constantly going to people and getting to know them and showing them His desire to have a relationship with them.
Aren't we called to be a follower of Christ? Aren't we called to strive to be more like Him?
Christian? ....maybe Disciple of Christ should be what we strive for.
