Do you ever look around and wonder where the blessings went? What has happened to our Nation?

Where have all the blessings and joy and peace gone in America?

Sure, we still enjoy more good things than we deserve to enjoy today (don't you think we deserve the cross cuz of our sins), but lots of blessings on this Land are now gone. Perhaps gone forever. Dunno. God still loves us, but our nation is currently adrift spiritually. Let's get back to the Word. Have you ever personally met Jesus? You can right now

The Bible encourages all of us to live as genuine Christians with Jesus as Lord in the now... today. And what beats enjoying fellowship with the Lord in this current day? Nothing does. God says...

"Blessed is the nation whose God is (not was..) the Lord; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance." 33.12ps.emph.mine

"Past experiences are only valid as they have been translated into the present experience. I am not interested in what God did in your life twenty five years ago in the Jesus People revival. I am interested in what He is doing in your life today. If the past experiences have not been translated into the present, they are not valid. Many people had a past experience like Paul's where they met Christ and for the joy gave up the past life, to enter into the new life in Him. In the meantime, trying to live on that past experience they have picked up some of the old ways and habits by which they were once bound. Don't tell me what happened then, tell me what is happening now." ~ Chuck Smith Sr.

It's a walk for today. So whatcha been doin' lately with and for the Lord? Does it give you JOY inside? If you've lost His JOY in it ..perhaps you just need to do it with the right motives and not for someone else. Whatever you do, let it be for and in obedience His Word.,

"And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father." 3.17col

"Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you." ~ Jesus, 15.16jn

Today is a new day know and seek and serve the Jesus Christ of the Bible. You know that in Christ we've all been given a sacred task to obey and be doing righteous stuff for the glory of our King.

Remember this.. The Apostle Paul's trade-profession to support himself was that of a Tent Maker, but guess what.. Paul was primarily a Witness for Jesus Christ everywhere he went ..yep, ahead of and while doing that (obviously in between jobs per se). What do you do to earn a living, believer? You "are" a witness before you are an American, or a Red-State-Conservative, or a Blue-State-Dem, or a Chemist, a Waiter, a Mechanic, a Doctor, a Lawyer etc.
