Finally, we are in the home stretch of this election season! As we decide how we’re going to invest our time and treasure in candidates, I encourage you to evaluate the Platforms adopted by each of the Political Parties to determine which Party best represents your convictions.
Some people think that God doesn't belong in politics, but does The Bible really say that we leave Him out of anything? As for me, I believe that all politics is spiritual, and I think you'll agree if you look at the facts, search The Word.
The United States was founded on Biblical principles. Congress commissioned the first printing of the Bible in the United States and encouraged all schools to use it as a part of their curriculum. Our country was founded on a system of personal accountability. Without honor and honesty of the individual and our government, we lose order. As a nation, we have eroded personal accountability and government policies that promote strong families and reward accountability. While the government cannot legislate morality, our laws should promote moral standards. We need to share God's solutions to people in need, changing their hearts and lives to result in order that not only honors The Lord, but provides a stable and productive society. Our government needs to provide legislation that creates order based on principles that create strong families and accountability for all citizens using a plumb line of fairness. We have allowed incremental departure from the values our country was founded on, and now we have a choice to make some changes to be good stewards of The Lord's blessings.
The standard to base our choice on is not me, you, or anyone that you see as religious. None of us are perfect, and all need His saving grace. Our purpose is to honor God. We are saved to have fellowship with Him and to share Him with others. It is our job to share His solutions for life's problems with people in need. We are to be the voice, the feet, the hands of The Lord in people's lives. And in all things, we depend on The Lord. We pray for His grace, guidance, protection, and peace. We pray that we and our fellow citizens respond in instant obedience. Our country belongs to Him. Please join in praying for revival in our country. Please commit to praying at least a minute a day. Please vote for the Party that most closely represents your values. You may not always know the person, but you can know the position of the Party they affiliate with. May we elect people that will honor Him in their decisions and service. May we pray for every person that serves in our government and for the military that fights for the preservation of our way of life. May God continue to bless America as we show His love to our neighbors at home and around the world. May God bless you in your walk with Him.
