What does America really need? I came across an article that explained it well:

A leader like Moses—who refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, but was willing to go with God.

Army generals like Joshua—who knew God and could pray and follow the Lord’s leading.

A food administrator like Joseph—who knew God and had the answer to famine.

Preachers like Peter—who would not be afraid to look people in the eye and say, “Believe God.”

Mothers like Hannah—who would pray for a child that she might give him to God.

Children like Samuel—who would talk to God in the night hours.

Physicians like Luke—who would care for physical needs and introduce their patients to Jesus Christ, Who is a Specialist in spiritual troubles.

A God like ancient Israel’s—instead of the dollar god, the entertainment god, and the car god.

A Savior like Jesus—Who could and would save from the uttermost to the uttermost.

Not only does America need these people, but the church needs people like this as well. If Christians don’t stand up for what is right and lovingly call people to the Savior, then our country will not survive.

A man’s heart is right when he wills what God wills. –Thomas Aquinas
