I love my country. I consider myself a patriot.
But at my core, I’m an unabashed enthusiast for the Gospel of Christ.
Patriotism or the Cross of Christ? Mutually exclusive?
I don’t think so.
I will not extol a nation at the expense of not exalting the Cross of Christ. It’s as simple as that.
The key issue for me is Jesus. The key to meaning and purpose in this life is knowing God through Jesus Christ.
And the hope for a nation, in my opinion, is conformity to God’s ways.
It’s the greatest patriotic act you could ever do for your country.
The only thing that ultimately can save this nation is to share the Gospel in such a way, that the Gospel is so pervasive it impacts every bit of this country.
That’s true patriotism.
