Somewhere between then and now it became politically incorrect to use the Bible as a reference point by presidents of our country. Ronald Reagan wasn’t afraid to talk about God or about the founding of our nation under God’s laws and neither should we.
America grew out of a group of immigrants who wanted something better. They were dissatisfied by not being able to worship as they chose – by not being able to voice their opinions without fear of being labeled insurrectionists- by using God given talents to construct a whole new nation conceived in liberty; a nation that would go on to be one of the brightest and best because of the people not their leaders.
Unfortunately times have changed, but I believe the spirit of America is still alive. Most of us still know what the American dream is. There are those who realize that our accomplishments are the result of hard work and determination. The brilliance of a nation under God still glows and even though it may appear a dying ember, the fire is still there.
As citizens of this great nation, we set a day aside to honor the men who served as President. Most of them were men of honor. Some were self-serving. Some had their own agenda. Some were corrupt. Some were sincerely concerned about the future of America. They were all chosen by the people they would lead. Isn’t that the one great freedom we still possess?
On this President’s Day, let’s remember all the men that served their country in this high office, but let’s never forget our God who made this nation possible
Psalm 103:19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules overall.
