This election was (and still is!) BIG in American history. Never in our lifetime were the positions so starkly contrasted. Never was it any more important to vote our values. Never has the church been so important. In fact, if you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check it out: Election Anxiety? This is a MUST SEE!
However, I submit to you that there was a far greater crisis back in the days of Jesus. After all, the Son of God was not losing an election. He was about to be crucified, and seemingly all would be lost!
You see, nothing on earth happens apart from God’s all-knowning, all-sovereign plan! Satan’s plan was to eliminate Jesus, and to leave His followers (including those of us today who put our trust in Him) hopeless!
The battles in our world today are real, and so many of them are spiritual in nature. Believers and leaders who stand for the truth of God’s Word are so critical today. We have a long way to go in our nation, and we must never forget the door that was swung wide open for every Gentile to enter into eternal relationship with the Jewish Messiah! As we battle for righteousness in our lives and in our country, let’s not forget:
“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”~Romans 11:33
