Covenant & Government #11

Our focus this week for repentance of breaking covenant with the Lord in the area of government comes from Scriptures that pertain to nations.In the Old Testament, the Lord refers many times to the sins of Israel as a nation. Jeremiah 5:21-29 speaks of national sins that result in bringing on the vengeance of the Lord. The Lord held Israel accountable for these sins. How much more will He hold us accountable when we entered into a covenant with Him at the founding of our nation? Please join together in repenting of these sins and replacing them with goodness in order that we may practice and pursue righteousness (1 John 3:7; 1 Tim 6:11).
