One of the neatest things the founders and crafters of our country did was design our government to be for and by the people. That means we have a say in who our leaders will be. Very shortly we will be faced again with the decision of which candidates to vote for. We should not vote for someone just because of their popularity, financial status, good looks or race. Christians should carefully pray and even fast, (Philippians 4:6&7, 1 Peter 3:12) that God would raise up good leaders and give us insight into which one we should vote for, (Acts 13:2&3, 14:23, Luke 6:12&13). A question we could ask is who will or is most likely to protect Christian values? We do not want the government in the Church or the Church in the government. But we do need freedom of religion. That does not mean it will be forced on others but we have the freedom to worship the God of our choice or to have no God at all. I cannot wait to vote, not because of the candidates but because it is our privilege and freedom that our forefathers fought and died for. I would encourage all to go vote and I hope my God's candidate wins. Remember Christians are to pray for our leaders whether we approve of them or not, (1 Timothy 2:1-3). See you in Church next Sunday.
