The Election Is For You to Win or Lose
In this campaign season when billions of dollars will be used to secure positions in municipal, state and national elections with the hopes of some candidates winning office we should think on this:
2 Peter 1:10New King James Version (NKJV)
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.
It is a blessing to live in a nation that practices democracy through the voting process and despite the taint of big money influencing candidates and elections, we still have a voice with our vote. The far greater blessing is that of election through faith in Christ Jesus. Christ elected to be the head of the church by losing in the court of public opinion and losing the vote to spare His life. He elected to endure the agony, humiliation, and misery of a criminal’s death though He was innocent of all wrongs. He elected death and was resurrected for God’s election of grace for our lives.
As the election season elicits varying emotions depending on whom you support, remember to be thankful for God’s vote for us and Jesus’ brutal campaign to secure our election.
Stay Prayed Up,
Rev. Rodrick K. Burton
