I pray for revival in America!

By: Pastor Mike Sanders

America is blessed. I pray for revival in America! I pray that God will renew the church and he’ll awaken His people. Who knows what God might do in us and through us as we pursue Him and His righteousness.

Many are frustrated with our culture because they are disappointed with the direction of our country. Earlier this year, we had several football players who wouldn’t stand up during the national anthem. First of all, I love America and I’m very patriotic, but we have such knee-jerk reactions. Our first reaction is to start tearing down the person, as if that could help the cause of Jesus Christ. Second, social media explodes with all kinds of accusations. One thing about America, we have the freedom to be dumb. You have the freedom to be stupid. You have the freedom to make bad decisions. Trust me, life will take care of itself. You live in a country like America where so many people are patriotic, and you get up, and you act like that. There’s going to come a time when people are not going to support you. You won't have that one million-dollar contract. The point is don’t react towards other people’s issues. Who knows what’s going on, so don’t get caught up in all that. Be repentant and pray for revival.

The truth is we need to learn that God is confronting our sin. He is saying to the church, “why don’t you deal with your sin.” The Apostale Peter says, judgement begins first in the house of the Lord…” We think that a lack of patriotism is destroying America. America is in the condition that she is because of the church’s status. The church is more worldly than it has ever been. The church is departing from the word of God.

The Bible says in Romans chapter two verse four “…do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance and long-suffering not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance.” It is the goodness of God that should lead us to repentance. It is the goodness of God that should lead us to repentance. If there is any nation that should be repentant it is America, because of how good God has been to us. America has let the goodness of God and the grace of God and the mercy of God cause them to become arrogant, defiant and unwilling to rely upon the strength of God and the wisdom of God; therefore we have made a mess of ourselves.

God’s people are responsible and accountable to each other. The mistake of Americanism is that we are individualists, and we take great pride in our individualism. We don’t need anybody else. We can pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, but God calls us to learn to support and to encourage one another.

The point is that we must humble ourselves and submit to God. We must line up under him, and follow his will no matter what obstacles we face. We willingly offer ourselves to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Breaking the Barrier to Faith

By: Pastor Mike Sanders

Are you facing a situation that demands an immediate decision, but you are unsure about what direction to take? Perhaps there has been a sudden change in your life, and you are wondering what to do next.

One thing remains right in your life; God has a plan for your life. If you trust Him, He will make a way for you through even the darkest of times.

Many barriers exist in our lives that keep us from having faith in God when we don’t understand our circumstances. These barriers are the same barriers that Moses faced when God called out to Moses on the backside of the desert. What are these barriers that limit our faith to trust God in the darkest days of our lives?

BARRIER...

The mark of a mature Christian is to be a peacemaker and not a troublemaker. When we come to James chapter, four that is precisely the situation that James is dealing with in verse one, “where do wars and fights come from among you…” There was conflict within the church, and he is challenging God’s people to be peacemakers rather than troublemakers.

When we are called to be peacemakers, we are commanded in two different ways to be peacemakers. First and foremost to make peace with God. We need to get our hearts right with the Lord Jesus Christ, and then we need to make peace with one another. James mainly is focusing on us getting things right with God because he knows that at the heart of all conflict is pride. ...

The Battle for America

By: Pastor Mike Sanders

Alexander Solzenitsyn wrote, “To destroy a people you must first sever their roots.” William O. Douglas, former Justice of Supreme Court said, “We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a supreme being.” Anti-God philosophies and anti-Christian worldviews now clearly dominate most of Western society. As Christians we continue to face an onslaught of worldly philosophies.

America is more affluent than ever, and yet is more atheistic than ever. Political remedies are no cure for America’s spiritual problems. God’s blessings are not measured by material affluence. The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against ...

Finding Hope at Easter

1st Peter 1:3-5

People today are searching for hope amid financial struggle, amid personal despair, and family tragedy. The world knows only of a dying hope. The Bible says, “Such are the paths of all who forget God; the hope of the godless shall perish” (Job 8:13 ESV).

In Contrast, believers in Christ have a living hope. We are reminded in (Jeremiah 29:11 ESV) “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

The Bible delivers that hope in the good news of Jesus Christ. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the reason for our Hope. It was the hope of a living redeemer that sustained Job in the midst of suffering. “As for m...
