May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us---so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. Psalm 67:1-2
The Psalmist is praying that God will be GRACIOUS and BLESS the people, and to show His favor, upon them, in order for ALL nations on earth to be able to see His GREAT WAYS, and KNOW of His SALVATION.
Can we, with good conscience, ask God to be GRACIOUS and to BLESS the United States, because of the WITNESS of the TRUE BELIEVERS? Are we presenting a PROPER witness of God’s MERCY and GRACE to a LOST, HOPLESS, and DYING WORLD? Are we getting the message out of God’s SALVATION for ALL MANKIND, to the point that ALL NATIONS on earth could KNOW that there is HOPE? Are we letting our LIGHT shine before men that they might see His good works, and glorify Him?
I think some are not as enthusiastically sold-out to Jesus Christ, as they SHOULD BE. If you had the cure for ALL the different kinds of cancer, would you not share it with ALL the nations of the world so that ALL those whose lives are threatened with the DEADLY disease could be SAVED?
Well, the TRUE BELIEVER, has the cure for the DEADLY disease of SIN, which not ONLY threatens the PHYSICAL LIFE, but KILLS the SPIRITUAL LIFE of EVERY person, EVERYWHERE on this earth. Why are we NOT SHOUTING it from the roof tops? “JESUS SAVES” COME TO HIM NOW! HE IS THE CURE FOR SIN and DEATH OF THE SOUL!!” So let us be the WITNESS we SHOULD be and then we can with a GOOD CONSCIENCE, ask God to be GRACIOUS to us and to BLESS us with His favor.
The way you receive the CURE for SIN is to come to God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE WITNESS of ALL God’s ways and His SALVATION to a LOST and DYING world. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
