It’s often said God’s people are living in a state of exile…
Meaning… Christian ideals aren’t welcome in today’s public square.
So, many believers have resigned themselves to a state of defeatism and inactivity… thinking we’re doomed when it comes to having any positive influence on the culture.
But there’s a principle from Scripture we ought to recall.
In the Bible, God sent His people into exile to discipline them… for their idolatry and unbelief.
So… when it comes to our present state of exile, the first response should be repentance… not giving up hope of changing society for the better.
