Not a political post! Or is it!

““Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to you shepherds of Israel who only take care of yourselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock?”
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭34:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Although the election is FINALLY over, the discord in our country is not. I'm saddened that we are so divided. So, I'll try to refocus on Gods word.

When Jesus told us to go, preach the gospel to all nations, he was telling us to take on the role of shepherd. We were to put off the things of this earth and to center our lives on service to the flock. Once we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior, we have only one goal, take care of others and show them the love Christ has shown us. We are to serve sacrificially, with no care for our own needs. If necessary we need to lay down our lives for our flock. Yet, how many times are our own needs placed first. Our decisions to serve are based on selfishness and greed.

I pray Christians will rise up and throw off the things of this world to focus on the things of God. Service to others is the best way we can reach the lost and really make America Great Again.
