America needs God

To the Editor:

As Easter approaches, Christians must reflect that journey into Jerusalem where Jesus Christ rode in on a donkey.

They shouted, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Thinking he was bringing a revolution but instead brought a greater hope.

Jesus went to the cross, putting sins of all humanity upon himself so that those who believed in him would not die but would have eternal life.

The night of his arrest he prayed in the garden while the others slept. Blood of tears poured as the Father sent an angel to strengthen him.

He knew the hour had come. Through all the torture, the beatings and the crucifixion, Jesus spoke only the truth and, yet, was convicted.

And despite that he still said, “Father, forgive.” He rose to life from death three days later to show Thomas his truth. “Blessed are those who believe and yet have not seen.”

How lucky for them to see that. To hear Jesus and see his miracles and even then they had a hard time believing. And they witnessed him.

What America needs today is truth and love. Truth in our country, truth in our schools, and love in our hearts. And restoration of faith in God.

In these difficult times, America needs God. And despite what some say, we need love for one another and truth living in us.

For blessed are those who keeps their faith and has not seen and still believes.
