I am not the biggest fan of politics. From the presidential debates that sound like two kids arguing to the exhaustive presidential campaign that is far too long, politics don’t attract me. I am not writing this blog to convince you who to vote for, I am writing to give you my perspective on the significance of this presidential election.
Since the establishment of our country, we have had 43 presidents. Each has done his job in leading the United States; some better than others. As our current presidential election is going on, I think we need a reminder. The president is an authority that has the power to REMEDY, but God is the ultimate authority who has the power to RESTORE. Our president is a little “k” king. God is the big “K” King. A president can only remedy certain problems within our country. He cannot rid our country completely of crime, illness, or poverty; he can only hope to remedy these problems. God doesn’t remedy, He restores. When He returns, He will restore the world by ending all crime, illness and poverty. Sin will be no more.
Choosing our next president is important. Listen to what they have to say, inform yourself and make an educated decision. As you do this, don’t lie to yourself by thinking the next president is going to save our country. Vote as you keep in mind that while our next president can only remedy our country’s problems, God will ultimately bring restoration not just to our country, but to the entire world
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:1-4).
