Praying for our Nation - Day 23
Luke 3 :8 - 14
Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God. Don't just say to each other, "We're safe, for we are descendants of Abraham. " That means nothing, for I tell you, God can create children of Abraham from these very stones. Even now the ax of God's judgement is poised, ready to server the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire.
The crowds asked , "What should we do?" John replied, "If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry. " Even corrupt tax collectors came to be baptized and asked, "Teacher, what should we do?" He replied "Collect no more taxes than the government requires." What should we do? " asked some soldiers. John replied, "Don't extort money or make false accusations. And be content with your pay.
This scripture was referring to John the Baptist. John the Baptist , was delivering a message of repentance, change of behaviors, and making a way for the "One" to come, Jesus. . It took root in the most unexpected places. His message was being heard from those who were poor and those who were oppressing the poor and being dishonest. This message is relevant today.
Forgiveness, and repentance, only comes through Christ Jesus, and it is for all! God sent His one and only Son Jesus, to die on the Cross for the sins of All mankind. There is only one way to the Father and eternal life - this is through His Son, Jesus. This is a free gift to each of us. There is No other way! Make sure you do Not believe there is another way..
My prayer -
Lord Jesus , I pray for our nation and surrounding nations, that there would be a world wide repentance and an awakening of the souls. I pray the Spirit of the Lord be upon us, that those who were once blind, now see. Let those of us, whom walk in rebellion say no more! Let us put away former self and put on the amor of You, O' God- seeking You and reading Your Holy Word,that is true, righteous and just.
Let us become reader and doers of your word Lord God. Not just going through the emotions for show! Let us not simply become dead in our walk with You Jesus, but continually being spiritually filled in Your unyielding love, grace, patience, forgiveness, truth and righteousness. Let us Only worship You, Lord God. The "One", and "Only"-True God, who brings forgiveness , eternal peace, and eternal life. Let us not become slaves to the things of this world-- that brings each of us further away from You and Your Kingdom. And knowing this, we agree this way of living, brings No peace to our soul.
