Are we spinning our wheels?
Is it a lost cause?
Is it hopeless and America’s fate is sealed?
Will there be true revival or is there nothing but apostasy?
I remember back ten years ago there were National Day of Prayer meetings in almost every city and town across East Texas. Now there are but a handful.
Christian’s cry out about the injustices of the nation, the sins of the elected officials, the crimes of the courts, and the conspiracies against the Christian religion but do little but complain.
A revival has become little more than a series of nightly meetings starting at a certain time and ending at a certain time. We walk out the door feeling a little better and commenting about how good the sermon was that night; yet it’s all forgotten in a week.
There is no power of Pentecost revival. There is no evangelistic effort to seek and save that which is lost. There is only apostate contentment that we have fulfilled some spiritual obligation.
It sounds bleak and don’t get the idea that I’m a total pessimist. Hey, Jesus is returning and I’m excited about that.
But I recall that Israel had the same problem that we face – they deserted God and served the Baal’s (false gods).
In reading Jeremiah you can’t help but feel the depravity of the people. Much like today, Jeremiah was threatened and told not to preach his message.
God had a message for Jeremiah, which when I read I thought of America.
So do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear them in the time that they cry out to Me because of their trouble. Jer 11:14
Is it too late for the nation as a whole? Perhaps!
But it’s never too late for those around you – your family, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, and friends.
Pray for them. Share the Good News with them. Seek out those around you that are lost. Sure, pray for America but be a witness in your own shoes.
