Greetings on this, the last month of 2016. It has been an amazing year for Mexico Ministries. One of the best. I look forward to another amazing year in 2017.
Today, I am somewhat disturbed by the ever growing division in our country. It reminds me of the contempt leading up to the Civil War here in the US. The North fought against the South, and South fought against the North. Brother against brother, father against son. Great was the division, and great was the suffering and pain caused by that war. I thank God the division that separated us was healed and our nation was united once again. One nation, under God with liberty and justice for all.
For the sake of our children, our nation and the entire world, I pray that I will once again hear these words, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The Scripture itself says “If a Kingdom is divided against itself, that Kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.” (Mark 3:24-25) David writes in Psalm 133:1, “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.” There is an old song that says, “Where the healing waters flow.” I pray to be the first, followed by many who will cry out, “Come healing waters, heal our nation.”
The Scripture says, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” I think there is another root. Deep controversy that causes division and separation. Cain killed his brother Abel, and the family was never the same again. Jacob stole his brother Esau’s birthright, and Esau vowed to kill Jacob. Isaac’s family was never the same again. Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers. The family would suffer for many years. For the sake of our children, our nation and our world, pray for unity and peace.
There are only a few weeks left before Christmas. I pray this to be one of your best Christmases ever. I pray for unity in your family, your church and most of all, in your walk with Jesus Christ our Lord.
Soon I will be back in Mexico where I will reach out to the children, the families, the churches and the nation of Mexico, praying for unity and peace.
Thank you for helping make 2016 such a great year.HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
