season rages across the nation. After all, Election Day is tomorrow. You can’t
turn on the television without being waylaid with a commentary or a poll. What
does it all mean? In the end, does it even matter if you vote? I mean, if you
DON’T live in Ohio? What does all this have to do with your Christian walk
For some, this
year will be the first time they ever cast a ballot. For others, it may be the
last. For many, 2012 is just another year of bickering politicians who fill
their airwaves with rhetoric.
Tomorrow, the citizens
of this great nation wield a great power. They walk into the voting booths
across this nation. They don’t carry swords or guns but instead they’re armed
with a pen.
The voter decides
the next President and Vice-President. He keeps or replaces Congressional
leaders with a mark. She selects her law enforcement, her judges, and impacts her
children’s future. It all starts with the stroke of a pen.
As a Christian,
I believe God calls his children to represent Him in every way. This country
offers one powerful way to show the world who lies within us. That’s right! VOTE!
Spread the Word!
This country is
unique. The founding fathers fled religious persecution to establish a land exempt
from religious tyranny. However, the roots of this great nation can still be
found on our currency, in our Pledge of Allegiance, Oaths of Duty, and the
refrains of our National Anthem.
Just as God’s
name rings in America, so it should in the ear of every Christian on Election
Day. As you walk into your booth, grip that pen as tight as you would a sword because
the power it wields is amazing!
45:13 “I have raised him up in righteousness, And I will direct all
his ways; He shall build My city And let My exiles go free, Not for price nor
reward," Says the LORD of hosts.”
