‘This Is Tough Ground’
This week, I’m heading to America’s Northeast to preach the Gospel in seven states. I want to warn Christians about a threat we face today—the sweeping impact godless secularism is having on our nation, on our children, and on our grandchildren.
The Northeast states, like America as a whole, need a spiritual transformation that only Jesus Christ can offer. This is tough ground. Once a lighthouse of Christianity in our nation, the Northeast region today has eight of the 10 most secular cities in America.
Yet so many people long for something more. Many Northeast Christian leaders have shared with us that they believe the time is right and the area is ready for awakening. In the Bible, God says, “I was found by those who were not looking for Me; I revealed Myself to those who were not asking for Me” (Romans 10:20, HCSB).
Pray that people across Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and upstate New York will know that there’s a God who loves them—and pray for people in your own community who need Jesus.
