“LAND OF THE FREE?” Wednesday Minute

” therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.”  Ezekiel 13:23

 

Read:   Ezekiel 13:17-23

 

While preparing the celebration of another 4th of July, are we into celebrating the celebration or sincerely appreciating this historical day?

 

How great is our country when our moral standards are being poured down the gutter?   As a child, I stood proudly every morning in school pledging allegiance to the United States of America facing our flag.   Today, most kids don’t even know all the words of the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’.

 

Sexual perversion and living together outside of marriage is promoted openly in TV, movies and even commercials. Vulgarity in speech and actions is a norm almost anyplace people gather.  Disrespect of our police and military is at an all time high.

 

Mention GOD and you may be looked at as a dinosaur.   But, that is what we are to do.   Scripture tells us of the many times GOD’S children abandoned HIM, just as we are doing today.  Finally, HE sent HIS only SON to take on all those sins and to give those who trusted and believed a new life for all eternity.

 

Isn’t it time you traded the evils of this world for the safety of JESUS’ arms?   Only JESUS can offer you the land of the free…free from the grips of Satan.

 

Today’s prayer:  “Thank YOU, LORD, for giving me the only true freedom.  Help me today to share YOUR gospel with others and turn the values of this country around.   Amen.”
