When the Founding Fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution, they set out to form “a more perfect union.” Have we achieved a more perfect union today?
While Americans have much to be thankful for, doesn’t it seem like we could do better? Rather than striving toward a perfect union, it often feels as if we’re going the opposite direction. Our divisions grow deeper by the day, tearing our country apart. We’re promised solutions by the next president, senator, or supreme court justice but they constantly let us down. Will we ever live up to the Founding Fathers’ dreams?
The United States is not alone in striving for a perfect nation. There have been numerous ideas for how countries should be governed, but perfection has not been achieved. Is there any hope for a more perfect union? Listen to what God has said:
There is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:12
Throughout history all people have been corrupted by sin. Every nation will struggle because they are founded by, directed by, and inhabited by sinful people. While some ideas are better than others, no form of government or economic structure will ever be perfect. Despite who is in office or what laws are in place, society will suffer the effects of sin through evils such as injustice, immorality, and crime.
Your iniquities have separated between you and your God. Isaiah 59:2
While God may judge a nation for its departure from Him, the individual consequences of sin are much more severe. God is holy. He cannot sin and will not tolerate any sin. Our sin causes us to be separated from God, and His holy justice requires a punishment for all sin.
He [God] hath made Him [Jesus] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
But God is merciful. In His love the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to take sin’s penalty in our place. Jesus, who is God, remained perfectly righteous while He lived as a man on the earth. He then died on the cross and rose from the grave three days later. His death was the perfect sacrifice to take away our sin. As a result, all who believe on Him are given His righteousness, not because they earned it, but as a gift of God’s marvelous grace.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Acts 16:31
Salvation comes when we put our faith in Jesus Christ. At that moment our sins are forgiven, and we are clothed in the righteousness of Christ. Because Jesus took our punishment, we can enjoy a relationship with God, both now and throughout eternity.
For our conversation [citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3:20
All who trust in Jesus Christ for salvation are given a Heavenly citizenship. While we still have the benefits and responsibilities of our American citizenship, we also enjoy the blessings of this better citizenship in the Kingdom of God. We longingly wait for the day that Jesus returns. Then our Heavenly citizenship will be our only citizenship and we will live as a part of His perfect kingdom forever!
Will you be ready when Jesus returns, or will you be excluded from His kingdom because of your sin? Turn to Him today, ask His forgiveness, and trust Him as your Savior and Lord. He will take away your sins, give you His righteousness, and bring you into God’s family.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1
