Navigating This Political Season
Anyone else ready for the political ads to end? No matter your political view, the ads give you the impression if the wrong person is chosen, all will be lost.
But let me give you a moment of truth. Our hope is not on the right or the left. Our future doesn’t lie in an elephant or a donkey. Our Kingdom is not in Washington.
Friends, if you are in Christ then your hope is in Christ! Neither the right or the left died for you. Neither the right or the left is eternal. Neither the right or the left is a propitiation for your sin. Only Jesus died for you. Only Jesus was, is, and is to come. Only Jesus appeased God’s wrath on your behalf. Christ in you is the HOPE of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
God has a plan for our future. He desires to prosper us and give us a hope and a future. Trust that whomever is in office cannot thwart God’s plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11). He is for us and no political party can be against us. (Romans 8:31). No matter who is elected, God will work it together for our good. (Romans 8:28)
This world is not our home. We are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, visiting earth but for a vapor (James 4:17). We are members of a Royal priesthood authorized to bless, heal, fight injustice, and set the captives free. We operate under the authority of the Kingdom of God whose King is not voted in or out. A King who is eternal, never changing.
Boys and girls, if political ads got you down, if you think relief is coming with the next election, I invite you to rethink the Majesty of God, the power of the Cross, and the effectiveness of Kingdom of God.
I am voting in this election but my Hope is in Christ.
I vote cognizant of the future I want my grandchildren to experience but I trust He has a plan and a future for them.
I vote to exercise my right as an American citizen but I live as a Citizen of Heaven, full of faith and hope.
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. Period. We will Hope in the Lord. Only. We will trust in Him. Alone.
