II Cor.5:17(Pt.4)Thought/Prayer:Christians and A New State?Topics:2@end.

“So that if any one is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old state of things has passed away; a new state of things has come into existence.” WNT (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Perhaps we could run a bit of a trail from the term “a new state of things” in this translation of this passage.  Let’s turn the phrase a bit and consider what would occur if we had a “new state of the state.”  What if our “state” (as we might here refer to as our nation) became a new state, a new type of state?  What if there were a huge influx of Christian spirituality into our nation?  How would things change?


Well, they certainly would not change going downhill, but uphill.  If truly dedicated Christians get “their act together” with the Lord; and if they begin to change and grow in Him; and if they become interested in not only politics/tides of public opinion/national activities . . . but how the principles of Christian living may be applied to these . . . at what type of nation would we be looking?

Yes, uphill it would be, a nation on the up.  Christianity and its God (who is, of course, the God of the Universe) is always positive in its effect when applied to any person, situation, nation, and on and on.  There may be some negative consequences if we Christians fail at our God-directed task of loving and winning the citizens of Earth, but even then the end is positive toward God, others and life. 

What might change with this new infusion of Christian spirit?  Would there be less animosity between people with different viewpoints about our country?  Would there be more willingness to come to agreement on some of the most divisive points of concern?  Would we be able to trust one another more, no matter party affiliation, faith, or lifestyle?  Probably.

So what are we waiting for?  We Christians enter a new state of things when we believe our Lord.  Why not start asking Him even more fervently to help us be a part of all the new “states” in life, even in our national pride and spirit?  Lord, we want to be willing to receive the new, Your new.

Topics:  Pray for our nation to indeed become a new “state” through the growth of Christians within it.
The conscience of our nation
