Is There Hope for America? (5648)

Is there hope for America? Yes: Jesus Christ’s spirit in us is still the only hope for America. However, it seems America is in a post-Christian era; professing Christians now enter hostile territory. We may be tempted to retreat or to allow political strategies to substitute the gospel of Jesus Christ. But we don’t have the luxury of silence. We’ve been called to preach the Gospel and come to the aid of our brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of denomination, vocation, economic status and race.

If we want to share the only hope for America, we must adopt the principles found in 1 Peter 3.

The first principle we must adopt is lordship.

1 Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts…” Nothing should come between us and our obedience to God. Before anything else, we must sanctify the Lord God in our hearts.

Secondly, adopt the principle of learning.

1 Peter 3:15 goes on, “…and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you of the reason of the hope that is in you…” The answers to the world’s questions are readily available to us in God’s Word. We need to be the people in society and politics who know what they believe and why they believe it.

The third principle to adopt is lowliness.

1 Peter 3:15 goes on: “…with meekness and fear.” Adrian Rogers says, “Meekness is strength under control. And the word fear in this context is a holy reverence for Almighty God.” We can’t be arrogant; Lowliness and true humility were the method that Jesus used in His ministry, and it is what we ought to use.

The fourth principle to adopt is a new lifestyle.

There needs to be something different about us. We are called to be set apart.

The final principle to take on is love.

1 Peter 3:8 says, “Finally, be ye of all, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous.”

Churches need to be places of love. People need to know, not what we’re against, but what we’re for, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Apply it to your life
Have you adopted these principles? The only hope for America is Christians who begin to look more like Christ, the Savior of the world.

View from Death’s Door – Part 2 – Part B

What happens when a believer dies? What will heaven be like? What about infants and children who die? When do our bodies get resurrected? What will they be like? These questions and more occupy our thoughts from time to time. In this new series, From the Edge of Eternity, we will follow a believer from death into the different stages of eternity: the Intermediate State, the resurrection of the body, the Kingdom Age and the Eternal State. Since forever is a long time, it only makes sense that we both understand and prepare for this "ultimate journey".
