What would the Lord God have us do as Christ’s followers living in 2023? The Lord intends that the Church of Jesus Christ serve as salt and light to the world. He wants us to represent the Kingdom of God on earth. God wants to use His Church to rescue our nation from destruction, the way he used Gideon to rescue the people of Israel. This means we need righteousness in our homes and the church. We must tear down false gods and build that which honors God.
