You may have wondered if I was going to (or ever will) give you my personal choice on a candidate. If you were then unfortunately you 'll find me a great disappointment. Although I reserve the right to take a different stance on this in the future if/when the Lord leads me to do so, I believe that I am supposed to be silent on the issue. There are many pastors I respect who endorse a candidate or at least let people know who they like and I find no fault in them but for me, after praying prayers and thinking thoughts, I've concluded that candidates are not my primary concern.
My main job isn't to tell you what to do or what to think but to continue to point you back to Christ and His kingdom.
~Matthew 6:33, 34
Selecting our next leader is a big deal, in fact it is a super big deal but it is not the biggest deal. A heart surrendered to Christ is the biggest deal! Why? World leaders will come and go but the rule of Jesus will never end.
~ Isaiah 9:6, 7
If we're going to sweat, debate, argue, endorse, denounce and pontificate about who we're going to let lead us in policies and laws shouldn't we devote ourselves so much more to the One who said, "Follow me"? Politicians talk often of things like change, hopes, and dreams. Jesus offers things like transformation, new and everlasting life, forgiveness and freedom from sin. He is eternally fascinating. There are lots of well educated and legitimately wise people out there offering good political advice. I listen to what they have to say and consider their counsel. Honestly, you don't need my two cents added to the mix on politics but perhaps we all need to be in greater contact with our King as we choose our President. If I can do something that points us back to Him, then that's my job.
So ... after all that my choice is Jesus. I want Jesus to be our leader. He is, after all, a might good one!
