Proverbs 14:34 (KJV) Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Most of the top desired destinations of the world today are nations that have experienced the transforming power of Christ at some point in their history. The Western world originally drew its homogenous identity from Christian values. They were not perfect nation-states, but at least their Christianity was strong enough to influence their culture and values. Unfortunately, there’s currently a concerted effort to erode these values.
Many Africans who live in Africa grew up in a culture that magnifies the powers of darkness. So much so that it is very hard to truly convince them that all authority in heaven and on earth belongs to Christ. Many believe this in their head, but they don’t really believe it in their heart. That is why in many parts of Africa, we have found a version of Christianity that lacks real power to transform lives. Any form of Christianity that does not radically affect and transform the culture and tradition of people is less than the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints.
Any Christianity that does not absolutely magnify Christ in the hearts of men is not true Christianity. It may be filled with apparent displays of power and lots of activity, but it lacks the real power of God that transforms sinners into saints. This is the reason so much religion has not brought real national transformation into certain African countries. Real Christianity brings positive desired national transformation. When this transformation happens to a nation, that nation will be exalted above other nations in the world. For righteousness exalts a nation.
Go into today praying for your country. Ask that the transforming power of God’s kingdom will envelop your nation.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that you send your messengers to minister toward the salvation of my nation. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
