II Chronicles 15:15 Mkjv And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought Him with their whole desire. And He was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest all around.
There is a direct connection between serving God with a whole heart and peace--both personal and national. In our tolerance for all but those who hold Biblical values, in our actually outlawing prayer and public expressions of faith, we doom our nation to destruction from within and without.
Godly people hold the line. Godly people who live for God, no matter what, are those who keep our nation's fragile peace. Without Godly people, a nation falls into evil.
Am I holding the line or contributing to our nation's destruction by my actions, lifestyle, attitude and behavior?
Psalm 96:2 GW Sing to the LORD! Praise his name! Day after day announce that the LORD saves his people.
Only God can save us.
