Romans 14:11-12 “For it is written, As I live saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
There is an alternative to voluntarily bowing the knee to the Lord, involuntarily doing so. Before we are brought to our knees, we should humbly bring ourselves there first. This admonition applies to individuals and communities. It applied to the nation of Israel, and it applies to our nation as well.
The most strident atheist shall bow. The worldliest Christian shall bow. The most impassioned advocate for separation of church and state shall bow. The most apathetic church-goer shall bow. Those who provide the strongest opposition to Christian values shall bow. Those whose testimonies hinder the cause of Christ shall bow.
Those who oppose nativity scenes in our public places shall bow. Those who refuse to wish someone a ‘Merry Christmas’ shall bow. Those who misinterpret the Establishment Clause of the Constitution shall bow. Those who deny our nation’s Christian heritage shall bow. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess; each will give an account of himself before God.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICA, LED BY FAITHFUL CHRISTIANS, WOULD VOLUNTARILY BOW OUR KNEES TO THE LORD. As a nation, we best do so before we are involuntarily brought to our knees.
