WE NEED REAL PATRIOTS! When we make God our Lord, then we who are Christians can be the kind of patriots our nation desperately needs. Is there such a thing as Christian patriotism? I think there is.
Let me argue that in light of the truth found in the 33rd Psalm,
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” – Psalm 33:12
there is really no other kind of patriotism. For you see, if we desire to be people who bring blessing upon our nation; if we want to be people who contribute to the betterment of our nation, then there is really only one way… promote Christ, fear the Lord, and make Him the Lord of our lives and of our nation.
True patriots will do whatever they can do in order to make our nation one whose God is the Lord. For you see, without making God our Lord, any “good thing” we do is done in vain. True patriotism begins with the fear of the Lord and the glorification of the name of Jesus Christ.
