Furthermore, all the leaders of the priests and the people became more and more unfaithful, following all the detestable practices of the nations and defiling the temple of the Lord, which he had consecrated in Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 36:14
Leaders and the people are free to choose how they will live their lives, although some nations put more pressure upon them to live in certain ways. Most often people will choose to live in the ways that others are living, giving in to the peer pressure and giving up their own personal convictions and beliefs to follow others.
Zedekiah, the last king of Israel, led the people in sin against God. The leaders of the priests and the people became more unfaithful to God and followed the sinful practices of the nations around them.
Some of the greatest nations on the earth were founded upon Godly principles and a belief in God. Over time every one of those nations have chosen to walk away from God and turn to sinful practices more and more.
America is one of those nations that has chosen to walk away from God. All across the nation churches, that are supposed to be followers of God, are accepting sinful practices and lifestyles of the world and rejecting God’s commands. Murder of innocent children, living together outside of marriage, drugs, homosexuality, abuse, transgenderism, drunkenness and much more are tolerated, accepted and promoted inside of “churches” that are supposed to be filled with believers. They are doing more and more evil.
True believers will take a stand against all sin. They will repent of sins and turn to the living God, rather than the worthless idols of this depraved world. They will choose to live a life of holiness and righteousness, following God, regardless of the cost, rather than becoming more and more unfaithful.
As the majority of those around you, inside and outside the church, are becoming more and more unfaithful to God, you have a choice to make if you consider yourself a believer in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You must be willing to choose whether you will follow the ways of this world or follow the ways of God.
When you chose to believe in Jesus, you agreed to make God the supreme ruler of your life. God is looking for believers who will be faithful to Him no matter what the world around them is doing.
Will you be found faithful to God in the end?
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as Lord and Savior; that you will know what God’s commands to you are; that you will allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in how to live for God; that you will be found faithful to God in all that you say, think and do; and that you will be separated unto God from the sin of the world.
