But the Bible, God’s revelation of His self-sacrificing love for each of us, tells me a different story.
If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and talk to me intimately, and turn from doing evil, and follow me, doing what I do, I will listen and respond by righting the wrongs they have done and blessing what they do and where they live. (My own imperfect version of 2 Chronicles 7:14).
In that verse I don’t see other people being the problem.
I see me as the problem.
I, who am called by Jesus Name, must humble myself. I must search for Him until I have developed an intimate relationship with Him. I must recognize and admit and turn away from my sin. I must ask Jesus what to do in every situation and do it. Then Jesus will heal our whole country and He will be able to use us to heal the world.
If I want change in this country I have to change.
Then God can use me to love this country back to Him.
