Let’s all remember one thing…

Jesus_wallpaperFollowers of Jesus, let us remember who is still the King of the Kingdom that we all adhere to…let us remember that no matter who is on the "presidential" throne, that our adherence is to a Jesus and not the "empire" of any nation…let us remember that no matter who ascends to political power, we have a living hope in none other than the Lord of all Creation…let us remember that true change and transformation is alive and well only in and through the power of God…let us remember, that His Lordship in our lives influences, infects and trascends all of what we experience in our journey together.  Vote but do not have unrealistic hopes, politically induced dreams, and fantasies that have never stacked up when you look at the reality of history and the brokenness of our race.  There is only one hope, one Lord, one faith in one Kingdom!   

"the night is almost gone, and the day is at hand.  let us therefore lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light"  Romans 13:12

  1. Amen to that. Whenever politics come up in a conversation and whenever I find that I and whoever I am talking to are getting caught up in the admiration of one candidate over another I try to bring it back around to the fact that God wants their throne. Our hope is in Jesus Christ, our dreams are his dreams and nothing less… dreams of a world without the curse, without oppression, without war, without poverty. Ours are not the dreams of the American Nation State which is primarily concerned with its own self preservation.
