"What Do I Hold Dear?"

Ask yourself, "What do I really hold dear?" We are in quite a conflict in this USA. Our attention is divide as we've entered this Lent Season and the Presidential race.

On the one hand we are aware that the King of Kings conquered death, hell and the grave. Our eye is on Resurrection Sunday. Our Conquering King reigns eternally from heaven calling to empower humanity to new life filled with possibilities beyond human comprehension. His name is expressed in every emotional event in our lives. Even people who vehemently claim they have no confidence in Him, His Church or His Word speak His Name.

On the other hand we are considering which person will sit in the White House. Our eye is on Election Day. Our Elected Officials are known to be so feeble they cannot guide our Nation. Our Elected Officials have become elitists who allow the banning of the Name of our God from our schools, deny His importance in the founding of this Nation, pass Laws limiting the influence of The Church, as well as, discriminate against Christians, ignore the Constitution and ignore common sense.

This is a conflict to consider before us. We know that God used Angels to announce the very birth of our Savior but he uses men and women to establish his Church and Purpose upon this Earth. We know that humanity void of Christ's redeeming experience are power hungry, easily corrupted and use men and women to establish their desires upon the Earth.

We believe God should be the most important focus in our lives. However, we might force our family to give God one hour a week by attending a place of worship and argue about giving a ten percent of our income in tithe for our place of worship to continue to operate. All the while, we all labor forty or more hours a week and pay a sales tax of 7 to 8 percent or more for every dollar spent. The sales tax is after being taxed 15 percent of every earned dollar and then we pay gas tax, and other Government licensure fees, real estate taxes, levies along with a host of other hidden assessed fees. We spend over 11 percent on entertainment, alcohol, clothing, tobacco and who-knows-what ( http://visualeconomics.creditloan.com/average-american-spends-on-entertainment/ and http://www.clearpointcreditcounselingsolutions.org/blog/budget-for-entertainment-costs/). We say we love our families but have little time for meal times together to get to know them and help each other work through issues. It doesn't take some website to Google to know that our schools struggle dealing with our children who dealing with an assault of drugs, verbal and physical aggression.

Around the World we were known as a Christian Nation who had Christian Values, strong work ethics and morals that led us to be blessed by the very God we now reject. We now allow others to condemn us for our beliefs and convictions by using words like Social Equality, Social Reform and Political Correctness to hide our lack of commitment to that which we say we hold dear. No one has a right to deny common sense or God-given ethics, morals or values.

We need to renew who we are as The Church. I don't mean a slight glance toward Easter but a determined focus on Jesus Christ and how you and I want this USA to be known. Christ didn't die a violent death on That Cross to not offend. He laid down a standard that He expected His Followers to follow! The Church isn't here to be silent and timid. And the USA was a God blessed melting pot not a refuge for special interests groups.

Ask yourself, "What do I really hold dear?"
