Patriotism and Priorities

As citizens of our country, we have a firm duty and responsibility to be informed, to pray, to promote righteousness and to vote. Let’s be sure to discharge these obligations faithfully. Along with these obligations, we have an even greater priority. Our ultimate responsibility is to evangelize and disciple. Eternal souls are at stake! Being good citizens will help our nation to honor God and to be a place where we can carry out the responsibilities of our heavenly citizenship. Paul, writing under inspiration, admonishes the church in Philippians 2:15-16 to “….be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the Word of Life.” We, who are born again, are part of that church. Only as the church discharges its high and holy mission in both areas will there be light to dispel the darkness and salt to heal the wounds and preserve purity! Duty calls! Selah! If we will spread the light and apply the salt, we will be blessed and will be a blessing.  Ron
