The Weakness of a Nation

How blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways. – Psalm 128:1

Someone said we have a weak nation because we have weak churches. Can you imagine what it would be like if our churches really got right? What would happen if elders did what elders are supposed to do? What would happen if deacons did what deacons are supposed to do? What would happen if the men of the church did what they are supposed to do, and the ladies of the church would be what they are supposed to be? What if homes would become the godly homes God called us to be? I mean, just take the Southern Baptist Convention – 42,000 churches. What if all 42,000 Southern Baptist Churches really stood for righteousness and had compassionate church discipline? What if it was understood in the community that you can’t live like the devil and call yourself a church member? What would it mean to this culture if the churches of God were revived and renewed to be what God called them to be? Republicans and Democrats would not be expected to fix things that only God has ordained the church to fix. We are a weak nation because we have weak churches.

We have weak churches because we have weak fathers in homes, and we have weak fathers because we have weak pastors who are not training, equipping, and discipling those men to be men of God. In the final analysis, the weakness of the nation comes down to the preacher’s desk. If the pulpit isn’t right, everything unravels because that’s the way God designed it to work. I have said this many times. I would drive two hours one way to get under sound preaching. As a matter of fact, I might drive three hours because it is that essential. Men need the faithful preaching of the word of God in the power of the Spirit and a church family membership where there is loving accountability and discipline for their actions. If you don’t want that, you are not a man; you are still a little mouse. Men of God want that kind of loving accountability. In every area of life we have that, but not in the church. Have you noticed that? In every area of life, we have accountability and consequences for actions, but not in the church where it is most needed.
