I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts. – Will Rogers

The Federal Government of the United States of America shutdown began at 12:00 AM EST on January 20, 2018.

No matter which side you take on this latest shutdown, or if you stay in the middle, this is a serious problem. Who knows how long it will last, but the blame game will go on for a long time.

I can remember back when the different sides in Congress worked out their differences. I can also remember when they were much nicer to each other and just because you were from a different party, you could work together for the good of the USA.

I think we’ve lost our way.

In Romans 13:1 it says:

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

We need to pray for those in authority. We need to pray that those in authority make Godly decisions for our country. We need to pray that they put their country before politics.

Amen!

The Sunday Message

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.Romans 13:1 (NIV)

It probably causes deep pain and discomfort to some folks who read Romans 13:1. Some people interpret Romans 13:1 as saying that anyone who is in authority has been basically appointed to that position by God.

I guess that passage causes misery to those who dislike Barack Obama, or to those who dislike George W. Bush.

I can already hear some holier-than-thou people saying, “My God would not allow XXXX to be President.”

Relax folks. God is in control.

We may not understand what God does right now, but I believe we will.

Although we may not understand all of what God does, one has to believe that with some people who have been placed in authority, God does have a great sense of humor…
