A Thought: A Christian Country

Can there ever be a truly “Christian country”? God’s kingdom has no borders, God’s church is for all nations, and God’s people have one universal language: love.

Faith is a gift from God, a matter of personal commitment and discipleship; not an accident of birth or location, nor a result of coercion.

‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.’
– 1 Peter 2:9

‘Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance; behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing.’
– Isaiah 40:15

It’s Up To You

I cannot convert you,
Convince you, compel you,
I cannot ask your questions,
Nor form your ideas;

But

I can love you,
And stand with you,
Can coach you;
And serve you,

Pray with you,
And for you;
Witness my experiences,
To signpost the Way;

Our Father God loves you.
His word will teach you.
His Spirit can lead you,
And show you the Way.

Jesus will love you;
By grace He can save you,
By His blood redeem you,
And give you new Life.

But,
. . .
At the end of the day
. . .
No-one can do it for you
. . .
It is up to you.
