HOW CAN YOU TURN TO DO GOD TODAY?

This was recently posted by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham on Facebook.

“Gay Pride month has come to an end. BBC reported last week “Pride has gone mainstream.” This is an entire month set aside to celebrate a lifestyle that God defines as sin. It’s like setting a month aside to celebrate lying, adultery, or murder (which includes abortion), or anything else that God says is sin. The Bible also tells us that God hates pride. Shame on the nation that celebrates and glorifies sin. All of us are guilty of sin, which means breaking God’s standards. The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” But instead of celebrating and taking pride in our sin, we should come to God, our Creator, in repentance, asking Him to forgive us and cleanse us. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to pay the price for our sin by dying on a cross in our place. Jesus died, was buried, and God raised Him to life on the third day. If you are willing to turn from your sin and put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, God will forgive you and give you a new life. Now that’s something to celebrate!”

There are so many areas this country is heading in the wrong direction from God. This starts with us standing up and obeying God to influence those around us. 2 Chronicles 7:14 states,”. If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Our land needs a lot of healing. What can we do? How can stay on His path which may make us more enemies than friends. We need to pray for our country and be involved if possible. I have been an election judge the last 4 years and had some discussions with others and have given out book marks with my website. I have also received a prayer journal listing politicians from “presidentialprayerteam.org. This group’s only connection is with God and with no party affiliation. What can you do to turn your life to God and country?
