"God has left us, the church, in charge of ruling the earth. Yet we stand around doing nothing while the enemy wreaks havoc all over the earth. We have allowed the enemy to kick God out of our government, and now we complain about the corruption in our government. We allowed him to kick God and His word out of our schools, and now we wonder why our kids are shooting each other. It's time that we, the church, take responsibility for the condition of the world.
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 will forgive their sin and will heal their land. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14
It's time for the church to begin to cry out and intercede on behalf of the land. We are so quick to blame unbelievers for their sin when we are no better ourselves. We are constantly judging them and then we wonder why they won't join our ranks. We need to love them instead of judging them. It's time we humble ourselves and confess our own sin to God. It's time that we start showing the world what a loving Father we have instead of turning them away from God by our own false conception of who He is.
