Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. Over one million men and women gave their lives defending the our country in twelve major wars. Another four million died due to complications after battle.
Earlier today, I accompanied my wife and mother to a powerful “Remembrance” time at our local cemetery and placed flowers on the headstones of loved ones. The solemn, prayerful, tearful ceremony showcased the “best” of America. Freedom is not free–it’s very costly.
The person I think about most on Memorial Day is my Uncle Dick whom I’ll have the privilege of meeting in heaven. He died near the end of WWII in 1945.
He was the bravest Boehme.
In the past few weeks I’ve written on the growth of atheism in America and how we must counteract it. I’ve also shared about the Asbury Revival–signaling possibly a growing Jesus Revolution in our nation.
One or the other is going to prevail in America in the coming years. The atheists will either guide us into social chaos and economic collapse–leading to tyranny. Or an awakening of the Church will sweep the USA and renew our foundations. “Who wins” boils down to this question:
Which group wants it the most and will work the hardest?
There are three primary ways we can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
First, in every country, you can intercede for God to intervene, save, and bless the affairs of individuals and your nation. Second, in all nations, you can make a personal impact through works of compassion, service, wisdom, and truth-sharing with others.
Third, only in free nations, can you make a difference by voting consistently and wisely for good leaders.
Here is my USA midterm elections plea to all who care about America’s future.
