What America Really Needs
July 4, 2012
Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
I once had the opportunity to meet Dr. Bill Bright, who was the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ and a real patriot for our nation. Dr. Bright told me about a time when he was visiting with a man who was wondering about America and asking questions like, “Who do we need to elect to get us out of the mess we’re in as a nation?”
Dr. Bright said it seemed that God gave him an answer so quickly. So he said to that man, “There is nobody to elect to get us out of the mess we’re in. What is it going to take for our nation to get right with God?”
One of the saddest things, I believe, about many in the Church today is that they’re putting their faith in the people and politics of our nation and setting up an idol for themselves. They believe everything will be okay as long as we get this or that person elected. But the reality is that there’s no one person who can transform a nation… only Jesus can.
Jesus is the hope for America and the world. He is what our country really needs. So while it’s good to be involved politically, remember that only Christ can truly transform our nation!
FIND YOUR HOPE IN JESUS, NOT IN THE LEADERS OF THE WORLD. HE’S THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN TRULY TRANSFORM OUR NATION!
