The Founding Of America

The Founding Of America…

Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in the New World. From its planting grew American civilization. So what was America founded on? What was its founding purpose? You can find it in the founding document of Jamestown – the Virginian Charter.

It says this: “… to the glory of His Divine Majesty in propagating of Christian religion to such people as yet live in darkness and miserable ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God…” So why was America established according to its earliest founding document? America was founded for the glory of God, the spreading of the faith of the Gospel, and to be a light to bring those in darkness to salvation.

Today, more and more, we are seeing America fall farther and farther away from its founding vision. What should we do? Pray. Pray for this nation. And now more than ever, you be that light.

Live your life all the more for the glory of God and to be a light to the darkness. For the darker it gets, the more the light must shine.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5: 14-16

Today, pray for this nation. Live your life all the more for the glory of God and to be a light to the darkness.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
