What I Read Today:
3 John & Jude; Acts 23; Zephaniah 1-2; Psalm 51; 2 Chronicles 3; Exodus 4
Well, the stage is set. Both sides have picked there teams. The game that never ends is about to pick up the pace. Between now and November 3rd, we’re going to be inundated with political advertisements.
Yeah! (Said the man sarcastically)
Every four years, we get together and elect the next President and Vice President. It’s become a rite of passage. We’re going to finally find the person who’s going to cut taxes, fix health care, end abortion, feed the poor, save the immigrants or kick them out, depending on which party you are from, and with all that pay off the entire federal deficit in 30 days.
Good luck with that.
The problem is, we’ve lost sight of the fact that we’re only electing human beings into these positions. They won’t be able to solve all our problems. Not in this lifetime.
So what do we do?
We follow the words of Zephaniah 2:3, “Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, who do his just commands; seek righteousness; seek humility; perhaps you may be hidden on the day of the anger of the Lord.” ESV
The problems facing our nation are daunting. They began when we turned away from a holy God. We can’t fix them by passing more legislation. The only way we can fix them is by looking inside ourselves and turning back to God with humility and repentance. If more of our citizens made that choice, would it matter who we elected?
