the Jesus network it is time to change the planet. We need to pray for America every single day. I believe America had its beginnings as a Christian nation. By definition, if you look at the latest surveys most people questioned in the surveys who say America is not a Christian nation because they don’t profess faith in Christianity.
So if you go by the majority today, you can say America is not a Christian nation. That doesn’t bode well for our future. We as Christians need to stand in the gap we as Christians need to pray we as Christians
need to witness to about Christ to our friends and neighbors. We need to share with them the love of Christ. We need to work we need to work in this time and effort to be ambassadors for Christ. Psalm chapter 43, verse one, vindicate me, oh god and defend my cause against an ungodly people from the deceitful and unjust man, deliver me. Ecclesiastes chapter five, verse eight.
If you see the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness, Do not be amazed at the matter for the high official as watched by a higher and there are yet higher ones over them. Jeremiah chapter 22, verse three through five, that says the Lord to do justice and righteousness and deliver from the hand of the oppressor, him who has been robbed, and do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will, indeed obey this word. Then there shall enter the gates of this house kings who sat on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their servants and their people. But if you will not obey these words, I swear by myself declares the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation. Do justice and righteousness and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. We can’t divorce ourselves from the world we live in.
We need to do everything we can to lead lead to lead, to live godly lives. And to witness unto others the grace and forgiveness and love and compassion, grace that is Jesus Christ. That can be very difficult in the world in which we live today. But Jesus lived in a world that was also very much like the world we live in today. A world that was filled with corruption, and thievery. In fact, he made some of the thief’s his disciples. Matthew, the tax collector, became a follower of Jesus Christ. Jesus spent a lot of time in the homes of sinners and prostitutes because Jesus said, it’s not the healthy who need a doctor, but it’s the sick. And Jesus was condemned for spending way too much time for with sinners. But Jesus said, I came to seek and save that which was last.
God has you here for such a time as this in America today. When we need prayer warriors, we need people who will stand up stand firm on their faith stand firm on their convictions don’t give in to what society is trying to tell you about abortion, about the roles of men and women as birthing people. Unknown Speaker 4:03 And gender bending ideology. We need to stand firm on the Word of God. Unknown Speaker 4:11 One of the things that’s interesting to me is I’m a pastor and I married people. And most of the people who have called me asking for officiants for wedding serve services. Are people wanting to marry the same sex? How far we have come? How far we have slid. The Bible says do not weary in doing good. Don’t give up one of the websites. We’re going to start. We’ve registered the domain and we’ll be building the website at some point in the future. is a website called Keep me in the game And we’re going to use this as a suicide outreach prevention. But keep me in the game. When I’ve had health issues in the past, my prayer to God is, God, heal me, keep me in the game, keep me in the game. It’s almost like you’re going to the coach and saying, coach, keep me in the game. Just keep me in the game. I’ll do everything I can to play and win for the team.
Just keep me in the game. Just keep me in the game. And the reason I started praying that was I heard a lot of Christians saying, You know what, I really wish God would would just come or God would just take me home and I wouldn’t have to live in this corrupt society. That’s not my prayer. My prayer is keep me in the game. Coach, keep me in the game. Keep me in the game. I know it’s tough out there. But keep me in the game. Heal me so I can keep in the game. Keep me in the game. And God as I’m in the game, give me the courage. Give me the health. Give me the fortitude. Give me the wisdom. To to be ambassadors for Christ, not to build up my ministry, you’re not to build up me in the eyes of man, but to build up Christ. I love the preaching of Billy Graham, Billy Graham talks about Jesus Christ Jesus, Jesus, and the kingdom of God. Once Billy gets into a sermon, he doesn’t talk about the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He’s talking about Christ.
The apostle Paul in the Bible says, I know I, I endeavored to know nothing are talking about nothing other than Christ and Him crucified, that is the spirit. And that is that is the passion that is the fire that should burn within us as Christians, as we preach the gospel. I know nothing. I seek nothing. I tell you nothing other than Christ Jesus and him crucified, For in Him is the life of men. Jesus Christ is what will save us today and Jesus Christ is what will save you. I endeavor to not be eloquent of speech. I endeavor to talk only about Christ Jesus name crucified. I watched a video one time of a biker gang, a biker gang member who was converted to Jesus and this, this gang member, all they could do is say Jesus, I love you, Jesus, I love you, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, about every sixth word he said was Jesus. He was just raptured with the love of Jesus, he was just blown away. By God. He was in love with God, a biker gang member. That is the passion that’s the fire that should drive us. It’s not to build our own ministry. It’s not to build us. It’s to share Jesus. In a world that is lost, dying, hopeless. We are to bring hope and light and a future for a world that is desperately searching for answers. Because everything they turn to is shifting sand.
And you have the answer, you have the hope. So they look to you and they say, Okay, talk to me about this Jesus thing, because everything else seems to be lying to me, or I can’t count on it. Or it didn’t work out. Is your God real? Because I’m really searching for something that is. And I think you’ll find a lot of people in that boat. Speaking of boats, remember the boat, on the sea in the storm. Jesus been in the boat. Jesus woke up. There was a period of time when when Jesus was in the boat, the the apostles were in the boat, and the storm was raging. There was a period of time when Jesus was sleeping, the storm was raging, and the apostles were terrified.
And then Jesus woke up. And the power of Christ was more powerful than the storm. And he proved it, because he brought them the piece that was stronger than the storm. Unknown Speaker 9:17 That is the Jesus we serve. And that is the Jesus that can reach hurting and dying and hopeless souls in the world today, who have no other answer that will save them. I endeavor to know nothing else other than Jesus and him crucified. This is TJ on the Jesus network. It is time to change this nation. It’s time to change the planet
