Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34
When we think about our nation, the first thing that comes to mind is not righteousness. What happened to our country? What happened to our entire world? Sin! It’s a word nobody wants to hear, it’s a word nobody wants to talk about, nobody wants to turn away from their sin. However we want the world to change but we ourselves don’t want to change.
What would happen if everyone turned away from their sin and turned to God? Less violence, less racism, less murders, less poverty. You might say “Well these Christians are hypocrites anyway” There are no perfect people, that’s why we need a Savior. However we have the moral foundation of God to live by. We have accountability to a higher Creator.
I don’t see any Atheist hospitals or homeless shelters being built. And why would they? From an atheistic worldview, all life is meaningless. We are nothing but random molecules in motion that evolved from nothingness. How can they say “All Lives Matter” when their own life doesn’t matter?
Righteousness exalts a nation. How do we obtain righteousness? Only through Jesus Christ “He became sin who knew no sin so we can become righteous before God” (2 Corinthians 5:21) We need to repent and turn to Christ, as our Lord and Savior. This is the only way we’ll become a righteous nation.
Apostle Paul said “We are all One In Christ” (Galatians 3:28) There is no black or white in Christ, there is no rich or poor in Christ, there is only saved Children of God in Christ Amen!
