Heal Our Land

“For the sake of those ten, I will not destroy it.” Genesis 18:32

The story of Abraham bargaining with God about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is curiously revealing. God is about to destroy these cities filled with people doing wicked things. The Lord said, “The outcry from Sodom and Gomorrah has been multiplied, and their sin has become exceedingly grievous.” (Gen.18:20) Abraham asked, “Will You destroy the just with the impious? (Gen. 18:23)

There is so much evil in the world. Sex trafficking here in the Philippines is so unimaginable. My sister is a director in World Vision and after her meeting last week when they were given the big picture about this and many other problems the organization has to deal with, she got a headache. Pornography is rampant. Murder. Drug and alcohol addictions. Corruption. 

Are we like Abraham, that we continue to plead for our country? Are we like Abraham, that we try to live in righteousness, in God’s favor, so that God will save our country from destruction? Let us be the people who are called by His name, Christians. Let us be humble, pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways, so that God will hear from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
