Everyone has written blogs on this very same idea. So what I’m about to write will really not be much different than any other conservatives thought but they may be written a little different that others in how they are put out there.
Now me and my wife, we’re sittin here in the living room a while ago putting together a lesson for our youth group (yes we actually work together, cause we’re a team) and we decided upon an acronym fer tha word Gospel (again, not an original idea) and if you’ll bear with me I’m gonna briefly outline this fer ya and if you’ll stay with me you’ll see where I’m going with all of this.
Merriam Webster defines Gospel as “the message concerning Christ, the kingdom of God and salvation”
G. God in us…we as Christians have something special and that is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. II Cor 1:22, Eph 1:13
O. Overcome death…we as Christians are the only religion in the world who have the privilege of worshipping a risen Savior. Mohammed and Buddah are DEAD, sorry but that’s just tha truth of tha matter. And because we serve a risen Savior we have no cause to fear death. Rev 1:18 Jesus took the keys to death and Hell.
S. Sanctified (to set apart for a sacred purpose) I could really get deep into this one but it’s not what this particular blog is about and I have a point to make about saving America so I’m movin on folks.
P. Privileged Heb 2:25 says that because of Abrahams obedience to God he was called the “friend of God” how much more privileged can one get? other religions are forced to serve their “god” out of fear of punishment while we as Christians serve out of love fer our Savior because of what He’s already done fer us. We should fear God but this is not the same as bein scared of Him, it’s a respect thing.
E. Evangelize…..AHA, now we’re getting to saving America….Acts 1:8 KJV says “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the world.” Now hold that thought and I’ll get back to it in a minute.
L. Ludicrous…..I Cor 4:9-10 Paul goes on to say that he is not ashamed of the message of salvation that he is bringing to the world. It’s obvious that the message is more important than the messenger.
Okay how does all this tie into saving America you may ask?? well here it is plain and simple. When we talk about evangelizing its the same in politics. We MUST take this country back first at the local level, go to school board meetings, go to city council meetings, meet your local politicians….how many of you folks know your sheriff by name? Or know who your city mayor is and what he/she stands for? Once we have the local stuff under control then we move on to the state level….and yup I think you know where I’m going with this…..THEN WE CAN RECLAIM THE FEDERAL LEVEL…..just like Paul said we have an important message to spread across the states and we need to stop being so stinking lazy and get a little more active. Don’t be ashamed to tell folks what we as conservatives believe in. Yep you may be called names and marked by liberals but in reality, WHO CARES it’s our children’s country at stake here.
