Taking our Country Back and making it Great again

making our country great again


I was thinking of our country and the changes that will be coming our way and then I was thinking of Jesus and the changes he brought. To compare the two would be foolish for there is really nothing they share in common.

One brought hope and life to Jews and gentiles (that’s us folks).  He brought love and justice.  I am not talking about the justice we have in our today’s systems but true and Godly justice.  Looking to the heart of every person.  What we have now is a system that is broken and turning more ungodly everyday.  Are we better off than a lot of countries?  Yes.  Does that mean we should not hold it accountable?  No.  Just because you did something as a child, is it then okay for your children to do that same thing even when it’s wrong?  I hope you answered no to that.

The same goes with our country and our rights as citizens.  Because corruption has been going on, do we continue to allow it because that’s the way we’ve always remembered it?  No folks, we change, we enforce the laws of our founding fathers (some call those laws the constitution) and we make our country great again.  We change the corruption that is taking over America from within, by bringing true justice and God back into our homes and our lives.

liberty for allBy saying no more, we stand one nation under God indivisible.  By saying no more we stand strong.  Do not think if you sit by and do nothing it will be better.  The people of America have been sitting for far to long.  I am not talking about starting a revolutionary war, but I am talking about starting a revolution of God back in America.  We as a country have neutered our men, taken God out of our schools, given our rights to the Supreme Court and have killed millions of innocent babies.  How long do you think this will go on without repercussions?  Do you think God is pleased that we except his love and then destroy our brothers and sisters?

I am afraid for my children and the legacy we are leaving them.  I am afraid for people who refuse to accept Christ.  We were created that our lives might point towards God himself. Well we have certainly done a bang up job with that.  I look at my life and need to evaluate what I believe.  I am a Christian but do I really follow Christ?  Yes, but then I ask, if people saw me in my home, in the car or out with friends would they see me as following Christ? “We have to be real.  No matter where you are at, does your life say what it really needs to say?”  That is a quote from a wise pastor.

You might be asking, what does that have to do with making our country great again?  Our country is going to change, that is a given.  However I still believe that if we truly want it to, it will change for the better.  Not because of who is elected but because of who we are as individuals and as a nation.  A nation that believes we were all created free men and most important because of who we are in Christ.  We don’t have to live two-faced we have to live real.  Be who you are where you are at all times and our country will change for the better.  To live is Christ and to die is gain.
Do some soul-searching and make sure when the time comes you are ready.  In the meantime let your light shine that men might see the glory of God.

I am not a preacher, but I am someone who cares about you, your families and our country.  I am saved from sin by a loving and just God and want to see our land of the free be great again.

For God and CountryWhen you look to the state of our country, look first to yourselves.  There is no one to blame but us for allowing true justice to be turned into what we see today.  If you want something you go out and get it right?  So want Freedom, Liberty and Justice and do what you need to do to make a difference as individuals and get it. “You are one, but you are one.” Never forget that each and every one of you count To God, To Country, and To Your Families.  You as individual can produce great a mighty things.  You can save and turn our country around, making it great, once again.
A Servant, fellow American, sister in Christ and sinner who has been saved.

    I thought the article was very insightful. Normally “we” are all talk. Reminds m of a church I attend, the Pastor talks about service and helping the flock by giving them groups to connect with and giving them charitable works to do right in the church building. About a year ago, I had two Mormons knock on my door, they came to meet with me several times, took me to their church. The point is since I’ve lived here they are the only members of a church that reached out, and daily knock on doors and sought to find those needing help. Why don’t most churches do this? Actually seek the lost or those needing faith & hope and visit these strangers in person. Shows contribution and perhaps being God’s hand in this town. -B

    • Brian, I too am beyond frustrated with the lack of discipleship within our churches. They care too much of what people think or having their tax credits removed than preaching and sharing God’s word. We lack leadership in our Country because we lack leadership in our homes and in our churches. It always starts with you, us as individuals. We need to go back to fearing and appreciating what we have been given and then have the courage to go out and share that with others. Christians in general get into a comfort zone. They attend church or their families and think that is where it stops. I believe that is where it begins. As believers we sometimes lose the aw of God and the result is we do not feel the need to knock on doors, share with family and friends or even stand up when things happen around us that are not right or just. We sit, we watch and in the mean time we lose our freedoms and rights. This is true about our country and our souls. That being said, we have a great God and should never lose hope. If you want change than go make it. Be that light that people see so they might question what you have. Encourage and believe you as an individual can make a great difference in your community!

        (Note: parts of this appear contradictory to my first post 🙂 )
        I appreciate your perspective and ideas. As a new Christian (1993) I was frustrated working with folks that didn’t have the joy or passion that I had to ‘serve” others. Yet I guess God works differently with all of us as individuals. Coming to Christ for me was very much of a random event. Perhaps random to me, not to God. Now that I’m older and have had many more life experiences, I guess I realize that God can ‘recruit’ a new believer where and when the time is right. Like He did with me. There wasn’t a Youth Group going out to save others, there wasn’t a Mom or Dad pushing me to be saved…it was one random person with the question “Are you a Christian?”. I really couldn’t answer that question. The person simply invited me to his church (Dr. Stanley’s First Baptist Church) and I started going. A about 1/2 a year later I was baptized.

        Based on how I was introduced to Christ…

        So, being older I guess I do understand or believe that God will build His church in (perhaps) more random and subtle ways than I personally would by ‘force”. But that is only my personal reality based on my past and present.

        Yet going out into the community and seeking new believers has to be important. Some people are hurting, some people no nothing about God, some need to be brought back, etc. Strangers will be blessed/grateful for a stranger to care about them and their life. Thanks for listening. – B
