REPENTENCE

1 Kings 11:11
“Therefore the LORD said to Solomon. ‘Because you have done this, and have not kept MY covenant and MY statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant.'”
The Bible declares that the fate of a nation depends on the godliness of its ruler.  If disobedience is not checked promptly, it continues into further sin.  Sometimes that sin brings judgment from GOD, but sometimes the increase of sin is itself judgment from GOD.  Reading 1 Kings should cause us to ponder the state of our own country in the light of the Word of GOD.  First, we should select our leaders wisely, because theirs is awesome responsibility:  GOD holds them accountable for the future of their country.  Second, when we consider the sin rampant around us, we should ask ourselves: How long GOD will permit such sin to continue–or are we already witnessing HIS judgment?  Either way, our nation will ultimately survive ONLY if we turn to OUR GOD and receive HIS righteousness through our LORD JESUS CHRIST…………
