Moving forward

Last night our nation picked a new President. Well, technically, we didn't. We picked electors who will gather in December and pick the new President. Then, in January, the new Congress will decide whether or not those electors voted properly, certify those votes, and officially declare the winner. That's a lot of headache isn't it? A lot of vote, certify, vote, swear, certify, tally, and so on, and so forth. At least this year, though, there aren't the recounts and lawsuits.

It's over. Now, what do we do? We focus back on telling people about Jesus. We get back to the basics of who we are as Christians. I'm hoping that believers will no longer be an 'assumed' voting block for a party, but instead will be passionate in their following of Jesus Christ. [do I hope that life issues will be the primary focus of our voting? yes. but there are multiple ways to handle that...McCain and the Republicans weren't our only option.]

The Church should be about much more than politics. In fact, we need to remember that only by God's allowance are any nations and rulers in place. We need to make sure our first allegiance is to God. That is my challenge to you today as we move toward the horizon: Ultimately, this world is not about the nations and countries we see, but about the fundamental divide between people. Some are alive in Christ. The rest are dead in sin. We have the message of life. It's time to share it.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
