The other viewpoint the Christian should avoid when we come to the polls is political primacy – all of our problems can be solved through the use of political influence, power, and policy. Politics plays an important role in this world. The Bible tells the history of many political figures who were written into the story of Christ Jesus. But politics isn’t the answer to all of our problems; Christ is. Politics, rightly surrendered to God, is a tool in His hands for His kingdom purposes. We should neither avoid it nor give our full allegiance to the political powers that be. We “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” And what God wants is you and me, our whole hearts. God wants our vote. And He wants to make our votes count in the upcoming election.
Not sure my (or your) Election Day problem is solved yet. But a people who are fully given to God can be confident that no matter who sits at the Oval Office, they can see a brighter, more powerful picture of Jesus who sits at the right hand of God in Heaven. What do you think would happen if we wrote in the name Jesus?
