There is an interesting video making the rounds on social media. I have included it below, but PLEASE read what follows after you see the video.
It is always my goal to avoid sensationalism and not to build a theology on modern-day things that get thrown into the news. Thus, this needs to be clear: President Trump is not our savior…Jesus is. There is nothing “magical” simply in a specific person owning a specific Bible. Yes, there is power in God’s Word, and Holy Spirit power comes from on high when we seek it. It is in those things we place our trust, not in the fact our President owns a special Bible.
Having said that, I do believe God called a pagan man (Donald Trump) and gave him a great responsibility (for which I am thankful), just as He called a pagan man (Abraham) and gave him a great responsibility (for which I am also thankful). God can use pagans when they leave everything they have and follow Him. Yes, we should pray for revival and I have written about that often. God invites us all into His Story of revival, and I pray every day that President Trump enters into the story God has written for him.
However, we are not dependent upon President Trump to begin a revival or to enter into God’s Story. That is our responsibility as dedicated followers of Jesus Christ! If that Bible is what opens the door for President Trump to join us, what a day of rejoicing that would be. But meanwhile, you and I (as believers is Jesus Christ) have work to do. Pray for our President, then get into the Bible you own, and let’s be about our Father’s business!
