In our country it used to be the norm for people to attend church on Sundays. Indeed, those who did not attend were frowned upon. Today, the things of God are not held in such high honour, and most people couldn’t care less about church meetings. Even so, there is relative peace in our land, and most people in the UK are well-off compared to many in other lands. How long can this situation last?
We see in the Bible that God was very patient with Israel, His chosen people; however, when they continued in their rebellion against Him, in due time God drove them out of their land into a miserable captivity.
There should be no doubt in our minds that God is grieved by our coldness toward Him. One day soon we may see our own country take a nose-dive. God may decide that enough is enough, and He may decide that it is time to punish those who grieve and offend Him.
I would therefore encourage you to pray for our country, its leadership and its people. Pray for a revival in our land, that many might wake up to their spiritual needs, call upon Jesus Christ, and be saved.
Let’s also make a point of recognising the Lord’s Day every week, by going to church to honour our God and our Saviour.
Make Sundays Special!
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
II Chronicles 7:14
