I heard this verse at church and it spoke to me.  If I blog, I blog for God.  Here it goes:

“…the father to the children shall make known thy truth.”  Isaiah 38:19 (KJV)

It is a duty of a father to teach his children God’s truth.  Even with our imperfections, we can still train the children in right living.  But it’s great to know that God is also a Father.  As the Bible says:

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba. Father.”  Romans 8:15 (KJV)

That’s actually a awesome liberty verse.  God means for men to live in liberty – under the authority of God.  That is why liberty is sought deeply by men and women even though they do not know God.  The Declaration speaks to a deep longing (and I might add it was helped by revival and great awakenings that prepared the nation for the Revolution) when it says, “…all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights,…life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”  This was the ultimate overthrow of slavery, the inspiration for women’s rights, the deposit that Martin Luther King drew on when he called the nation to righteousness in its relations between people of various colors and races.  Thank God that our nation is exceptional and had an exceptional origin and history!

But the verse also speaks to God as a loving Father.  He loves people so much He sent his Son to die so that He could pardon our sins!  I exhort my readers to consider that and receive Him in faith today!  (here’s how!)

Thanks for your patience; let’s continue the fight for liberty under God!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
