I would like you to ponder and search the scriptures for yourself about what I am going to share. It all started while reading 1 Peter 2:9 ; "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, A HOLY NATION, a people for his own possession,that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."
It was the
expression of A HOLY NATION that caught my attention. As a believer, I
began to realize that I am an ambassador of Christ of this HOLY NATION
to proclaim the good news of reconciliation to a dying world. The more I
grow in Christ, my politics have changed to a more eternal perspective.
I am learning more and more that I can bring change in America on my
knees rather then with my mouth . God doesn't need my mouth to express
my opinions and to get into aggressive arguments to get His work done.
The body of Christ, is a united NATION WITHIN A NATION that rules
through prayer. Isaiah 9: 6 says " the government is upon His
shoulders" and this is the government that I am submitted to for
Jesus Christ is the sovereign ruler over all Nations. I am to
pray for America, and her leaders, etc. but not to get emotionally
involved anymore. With another election around the corner, I am
expecting that it will be a real test to see how much I believe and
understand what I just wrote, namely that the church, (the body of
Christ) is a HOLY NATION, WITHIN A NATION. "Lord Jesus keep me on my
knees!" I pray. (2Chronicles 7-14)
