I have been working on a post about the election for a couple of days now and I still haven’t finished it. I don’t even know if I will finish it, but the election definitely has people talking. One of the things that has bothered me the most is the fear that many Christians are feeling. If we stop and think about fear, we would realize that fear does not come from God. It is an emotion straight from Satan. Mark Matlock from Planetwisdom had an excellent post about this today on his blog. He said it better than I can. Read his entire post here.
I was shocked. While I may have preferred one candidate over another, I’ve never been in fear of either one becoming president. What is shocking most, is that much of this “fear mongering” came from those who would call themselves followers of Christ.
As Christians our confidence lies in the sovereignty of God. We do not need to fear anything or anyone. But rather in humility and grace live our lives respectfully in the world.
How do you think the world will change most? By changing the government or helping others follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ ? Let’s not put our effort into changing the world through government let’s change the world through the hope they might find in the way of Jesus Christ.
To that I would add simply “AMEN!”
