The writer of Hebrews asks, “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” Our country and our world is reeling with uncertainty. Men’s hearts are failing them for fear.
Many people don’t know who to trust anymore. Remember the day when Americans felt that, by and large, we could trust our political leaders to do what was right? Well, maybe that was naive, even then, but now the darkness has been brought to light and where do we stand? We stand on shaky ground, for sure, if we are trusting in government.
It seems that the days are racing toward more and more confusion. Those who do not acknowledge The Righteous One do evil and call it good. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20.
Violence and moral decay have come in like a flood. Our children don’t get the chance to experience the joy and purity of childhood. They are inundated with the evils of this world all around them.
So, Christian, what can we do? Work to increase His Kingdom! How? How do we increase the Kingdom influence? By increasing the numbers of citizens of the Kingdom! If we want our nation to be more righteous, we need more people to be made righteous.
Only one way….only one answer. God’s plan. “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15
“Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:19, 20
