Living, Voting & Praying Biblically
I’m one of the least political people on the face of the earth. The knowledge I do have about our candidates for President of the United States is courtesy of my darling husband and his friendship with Fox News.
I don’t trust what I hear on ads, in debates, or on the news. can I get a witness?
Dr. David Jeremiah got my attention with his Election Message. Most pastors avoid directing their congregations on how to vote. I don’t blame them. But I applaud Jeremiah’s courage and boldness. He explains, “The spiritual and biblical issues that are at stake in this election are so critical that I believe I would be sinful not to speak about them.”
In this sermon, he answered for me so many questions regarding voting when the two choices are less than Christian – aka – followers of Jesus Christ.
I’ve embedded it here for you and trust that you will be inspired and educated by what he has to say. Please share this video if you feel led. The sermon starts at 40 minutes into the video.
In this message, he gives biblical references that guide us to live out our faith in the upcoming election. Here are a few:
Moreover, look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and place such men over the people as chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens.
The God of Israel has spoken; the Rock of Israel has said to me: When one rules justly over men, ruling in the fear of God,
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.
The prayer of my heart is that our country, especially our leaders, will fulfill 2 Chronicles 7:14 –
if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
I’m grateful to live in a country where I can share this video with you. And I’m grateful that our God has more power than any elected man.
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;
How does David Jeremiah’s sermon encourage you? inspire you? I would love to know if it helped you.
