Salt, Light and a City on a Hill

I have told you that in the messages that I plan to bring to you throughout this week I want to deal
with the theme of our responsibility as Christians towards the nation in which we live. I believe the Word
of God clearly reveals that as Christians we are accountable for the society and the nation in which we
live. Unfortunately, it seems to me that the great majority of Christians have not even begun to think
about this responsibility. For my part, being a British resident in the United States, it seems clear to me
that your country is facing one of the greatest, and possibly the greatest, crisis in its entire history. And I
believe that our coming together as Christians in this camp would be utterly unrealistic if nothing was
accomplished during this week that had any bearing or positive effect upon the needs of the nation in
which we live. I believe that we should have failed God, and so for the entire week I want to deal with the
theme of our positions as Christians in the nations in which we live, our privileges and our
responsibilities. I want to deal with it in the most practical way that I am capable of, if there is a more
practical way, I don’t know it. But I am going to be as practical as I am able to be.
