Just as Jesus is the Author and Perfecter of our faith, He is also the Author and Perfecter of Nations. Jesus Christ brought this nation into existence and through His people, the Church, He gives it hope. To be sure, we are not the saviors of our country, only Jesus saves. But it is through His church that He proclaims a truth that can save a nation. Paul gives us unique insight into that reality through his letter to young Timothy in 1 Timothy 3:14-16.
