Ask God to begin a revival here in America…and that it would start with you!

July 4, 2016

Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.

 –Matthew 24:42

 

Sodom and Gomorrah were terribly sinful places that were so full of sin and evil that the Lord chose to remove them from the earth. Most people know the story of how God destroyed those two cities…a story which I believe has an important lesson to teach us today on our nation’s birthday.

 

Many people today believe that America is basically no different than these two famously sinful cities. If you believe that’s true, then that begs the question, “Why would God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, but let a place of equal sin continue unpunished?” That’s a very good question, and one we need to consider carefully.

 

One conclusion could be that God is trying to get the attention of America! Between all of the natural and manmade disasters that have occurred in recent years, I believe God is trying to get through to us.  Unfortunately, too many times we don’t listen until our very foundation gets rocked to the core, which has happened to us over the last several years.

 

So what can we do? I strongly believe the only hope for America is a true revival among the Christians in this nation. And that revival can start with one person! 

 

On this special day, why not ask God to start a personal revival in your heart and let it spread to everyone around you. Celebrate your Independence Day by starting a spiritual fire around you that will burn brightly and draw others to its light and warmth.
