Sunday Sharing: Would God's Message For The U.S. Be The Same?

I'm continuing to read Ezekiel and this week came across the following verse that made me wonder if God would say the same thing to the people of the United States.  Here it is:

So say this to the people of Israel:  "This is what the Lord God says:  Change your hearts and lives.  Stop worshiping idols.  Stop doing all the things I hate." --Ezekiel 14:6 (Children's International Version)

I can't help but think God must be so displeased with our injustice and the deterioration of morals in this country.   Legalizing sin (abortion, homosexuality) is just plain wrong!  There, I said it.

On a more positive note, I had a blast at our Vacation Bible School with the Sonwest Roundup theme.  I helped in the 5th and 6th grade group and had both boys and girls in my small group.  I really thought I was going to win three years in a row, but this year my group came in second place because we had some who missed some days after they started.  I am happy to report though that everyone who was there Friday and even one who wasn't said all five verses during the week.  I love seeing children memorizing God's word and hope they will remember these verses:  John 3:16, John 16:33, John 11:25, John 6:35 and John 13:34-35.

What was your scripture highlight of the week.

May God grant you favor for putting His Word on your blog. A conservative, Biblical world view is not in vogue and Christians are called phobic, raciest, etc. If we are living our lives according to His Word, we are living in love and it takes love to speak His truth.

You and I are on the same page. I don't think God is happy with most of America. Many have chosen the wrong path and are now forcing the rest of us to submit. You and I won't do that.

Have a blessed day. Scritches to the babies. :)

If my kids went to your bible camp I would want them in your group. I bet they have a blast with you.

And yes, I do think the Lord looks at our country and thinks the same as Ezekiel 14:6, I am so sorry Lord, is what I say all of the time.

Praise Him, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Jesus our Lord and Savior, AMEN!

Good to see you Karen.
