It seems that our country has become more and more divided. The left blames the right and the right blames the left. Each side is skeptical about the other when it comes to truth. Jesus said in Luke 11:17, “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall. Our country was established, one nation under God. The moment that we moved away from that core value, the enemy moved in. His purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. His main tool is division. He has attacked our marriages, our families, our churches, and our government. Our enemy is not one another but if we continue to believe that they are, we will fall and fall hard. In the book of Ephesians, Paul reminds us that our struggle is not against flesh and blood but the spiritual forces of evil. We may not be able to change our country but we can change how we talk and treat others, one person at a time.
“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
