A Divided Country: How Do We Fix it?

Son of God

We can’t fix ourselves. We know that. The Bible explains our situation and our nature.

My husband and I are following a plan to read through the Bible in a year. We are reading about the faith and failures of people. The problem of sin.

God promises to send a Savior. The New Testament records the arrival of Jesus, the Son of God incarnate. Jesus explains God’s plan for our redemption. He offers himself as a sacrifice for sin. 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Our nation cannot fix itself. George Washington once said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

King Solomon prayed for his people and God replied. If My people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

The book of Hebrews teaches that we must hear God’s words, believe Him and act according to his precepts. 

It is time to hear and obey. Pray for our country.
