2. For King Or Country: Where Does Our Hope Lie? (Psalm 47 )Related Media
“In God We Trust.” That’s what we find written on our coins and currency. Christians are well aware that this statement no longer represents the perspective of many Americans. The real question is, “Does this statement accurately represent the firm conviction of many evangelical Christians in America?” This question is especially pertinent after an election that hasn’t put our candidate into office, or after an executive order or Supreme Court decision that is directly opposed to biblical values and principles.
Jeff Horch has a word for us that we really need to hear. This message was initially delivered on November 4, 2012, a couple of days before the 2012 Presidential Election. It is just as applicable to us today, as we watch all branches of our government turn from scriptural principles and values. Jeff has a crucial message for us: God is King! He is sovereign, and He has not lost control of this world. This is a word that will keep us from wringing our hands as though everything is out of control. This will turn us from our fears to faith in the all-powerful, all-knowing God. This is the mindset that will sustain every Christian. I urge you to read this message from Psalm 47.
