May God Help Us

May 26, 2014

Today is Memorial Day. Many people will barbecue; others see this as the start of summer. Yesterday, many churches made their services into patriotic celebrations. We have a problem.

Today is supposed to be a national day of remembrance and mourning. It is a day to honor the dead and be thankful for their sacrifice while remembering the people who will continually suffer as their loved ones surrendered their lives to their country.

May churches abandon their American flags and fall on their faces before The Lord Almighty and ask Him to start ushering in the peace which is promised. May we repent as a nation as the blood spilled is on all of our hands. May we be ever grateful for those who volunteered to defend us. The church must start bringing heaven to earth and be a church of peacemakers, not political cheerleaders.

This year, I am leaving you with the song “The Last Shot Fired” by Trace Adkins and the West Point Glee Club.
