I have been reading the book of Daniel lately, and I believe that just like Daniel did in his day, Christians today can live distinctively and authentically Christian lives under any form of earthly government. In the United States, we are privileged to be living in a context of religious freedom; most Christians around the world do not. We are privileged to be living in a nation where its foundations are constructed upon morals and ideals derived from the Bible. Most of our brothers and sisters around the world are not. That does not mean God loves them any less.
Romans 15:13 "Now may the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." The God of hope wants us to abound in hope. True hope is a gift from God from the Holy Spirit, and it is connected to our faith.
