This question has really been at the forefront of my mind recently. Why is Christianity waning in the United States while it is growing by leaps and bounds in Africa and Central America? The Islam religion is growing around the world. Why? I believe the answer to these questions is faith and commitment.

It seems as though we in the USA have traded our dependence on God for dependence on the government and ourselves. We no longer believe that God can provide for all of our needs. We have been lulled into believing Satan’s myth that the more we have, the happier we will be. We don’t want to share and help our neighbors anymore. When is the last time you even spoke to your neighbor?

Christianity in Africa and Central America is growing because they trust God. They believe the promise that He will be with them always in everything they do. The founders of this great nation had that belief as well and the country thrived even through difficult times. We need to find that faith and commitment once again.

Our nation will be blessed when we realize as Jacob did, (Genesis 28:16) “When Jacob awoke from his sleep. He thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.” Wake up America!

God has blessed America and will do so again when we turn our lives and over nation over to Him. We as faithful followers of Christ must stand up against those who would attempt to take away our freedoms and take God out of America. After all, we are “One nation under God.”

Ninety percent of our church pews are empty on Sunday morning because there is always something better to do. Friends, there is nothing more important than God. He gave his Son for you and your salvation. What are you doing for Him? See you in church.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Bill
