The Essential Jesus, Day 10
Our civic responsibility. As we read the Day 10 of The Essential Jesus reading plan on YouVersion.com, we see just how important it is that we pray for our government. Read Amos 5:1-27.
As we see, when the government becomes corrupt, everything tends to fall apart around. Those in power desperately need the grounding and direction that Christ provides. Without it, it is way too easy to lose their way as they try to lead. As we are following Jesus, we need to keep focused on the importance of loving what Jesus loves and hating what he hates. Are we leading others to Jesus and praying for our government? We need to be and it is our responsibility.
