Election Day Insanity

Today is an awkward day in America, particularly for Christians. Having been brought into Christ and knowing now His life and love for us and for all, still we will make choices today that seem to divide us into groups opposed to one another. We’re voting! It’s Election Day. Frankly, we go a little crazy, and can get ugly and hurt. We might go a bit blind today and lose sight of who we are and where we are—in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit who loves and draws all, and who never ever loses sight.

After the election—tomorrow—perhaps we will begin to remember again who we are and where we are, and how the Kingdom of God in us always compels us in truth and love. Maybe some of you will do us a favor and help us regain our thinking, not by shaming the crazy Americans—that’s never the God-given way of bringing us back to our senses—but by telling us the truth of the gospel, the good news of what God has done through Christ for us. That will be the power we need to revive us.
Until tomorrow, see you later.
