Well it’s finally over… I’m sure you are relieved as I am. I wanted to share a couple brief thoughts. I normally post on Tuesday and Friday but today thought it was worth wrapping up the election season with a brief note.
God has appointed Barack Obama as our 44th President
Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
Man is still sinful
Romans 3:10-12 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”
Christ is on His Throne
Revelation 4:2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
Pray for those in authority – not just your party of choice
1 Timothy 2:1-2 Therefore I exhort first of all that those supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
Today is a new day
Today if you are follower of Jesus Christ you have an opportunity to tell someone what Christ as done in your life. If the topic of politics comes up ask them if they know Christ as Lord and why did He come to earth? That will get the conversation going.
