Presidential Election 2016: Whatever the Result

If Christ's church doesn't show Jesus, we all lose.

Maybe your man Trump will win and Hillary the Evil Empress will lose. Maybe your woman Clinton will win and Donald the Perverted Pied Piper will lose. Whatever your view of the candidates and whatever the result of the Presidential election, the state of your heart matters far more.

If all of us who name the name of Christ fail to show the Lord Jesus, we all lose individually and we all lose corporately.

Whatever the result of the election and no matter who is President after January 20, we ambassadors of the kingdom of Heaven must show forth the character and commission of the King of glory.

We Christians must offer, must show, must be…

  • light
  • peace
  • hope
  • love
  • healing
  • truth
  • honor
  • holiness

Jesus himself drew near, and went with them (Luke 24:15)

We Christians must seek personal revival, renewal, and restoration for each of our own selves individually. Then, as we are stronger together with the Lord Jesus, we can be part of the spiritual revival of holiness and Christ-ness that will make America great again at last in the eyes of the Most High.

No matter who is victorious or who is coronated as a result of the voting that culminates today, God’s people must live by Jesus. This country needs that from God’s people far more than anything else we can offer.

Think about this:

“We would see Jesus” (John 12:21).

“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2).

May Christ’s church lay aside politics and all associated with it. May we be faithful to the “ministry of reconciliation” by the “word of reconciliation” given to us (2 Corinthians 5:18,19).

I could go on and on, but this is enough. You don’t need me to ramble further and I don’t have time to pursue a disconnected stream of consciousness thing here. I invite you to read three little pieces I wrote in my devotional blog long ago:

Let us grow in faithfulness to the Lord Jesus, “blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life” (Philippians 2:15,16).
