We have recently survived another election. Some are happy, and some are sad with the results. I would submit to you that I accept the importance of individual feelings. My point today is to take you to a much larger and infinitely more important issue. Psalm 33:12a, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” America may see an economic revival, and that is much needed. Our position in the world could once again become a position of respect and trust. Many wonderful changes have once again been promised to the American people. However to become a sound nation once again we must get God back on the throne of our national life. The Lord Jesus Christ must be given His exalted place in the country. Let me go on record and show you how it must be sooner or later. I believe that every person will bow to Christ in this life or the life to come. He must be recognized as the God that He is. In honoring and worshipping Him, we honor and worship God. Let’s see what Phil. 2:5-11 says.
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
We see here that Jesus did the following to earn His exalted position. He took the form of God. He was equal with God. He made Himself of no reputation. He took the form of a servant and man. He humbled Himself. Lastly and most importantly, He became obedient to death. This is why Jesus must be honored in America. He is denied His proper position by many. Modern man has a long series of ideas and reasons why it is old fashioned and unnecessary to honor God. To take that position you must remove or deny the Bible (See Ps.33:12a above). My hope is that our leader will be a Bible believer. I have as great a hope that you will be a Bible believer. I know that some of you are already believers. Aren’t you happy you made the choice?
Unsaved friend, you have a wonderful opportunity to bow your knee and humble yourself.
Let your lost humble estate cause you to confess that He is Lord and receive Him as your Savior. You will never go wrong nor will a nation go wrong following Jesus. Read Philippians 2:2-11 again, and trust Christ today. Do your part to make America a better place.
