“After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger”
- As a nation, we seem to be following the same pattern. Our “One nation under God” has become “One nation under whatever pleases us”. Before we get to upset with everybody else in this nation, let us look at our own house, to see where are we “bending” God’s rules.
- What do we overlook, or accept, that God strictly forbids in His word?
- Do we know what His word says?
2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
