What is really alarming is how passionate some people are about their candidates. I understand passion and I am not saying that there is anything wrong with having convictions. Nonetheless, when I see people who proclaim Christ being more concerned with an election than they are about Christ, it makes me sad. When I see brothers and sisters in Christ turning their backs on the love of Christ to insult people who have differences of opinion with them, it makes me sad. When people assume they know what typer of person I am because of the political party with which I identify or they think they know the political party with which I identify because of who I am, it makes me mad!
Imagine if we lived in a world where we were as passionate about Jesus as we are about our favorite politicians and policies. Not to the point of degrading others, but just trying to persuade them of how incredibly awesome Jesus is and how a life lived with Him is like no other! And don't think I am just talking to other people; I even wish I was more passionate in sharing my love for Jesus.
No matter what happens tomorrow, I truly understand who is really in control and it is not a Republican or a Democrat. It is not a politician at all. For the past 34 years, there have been different political parties in the White House and on Capitol Hill and yet, my life feels unaffected by anything they do. I believe that it is because I have the King of Kings on my side. I vote because the Bible tells us to be good citizens and because people fought and died for me to vote, but my faith and my trust and my hope and my change rest in Jesus alone. No man can do for me what He has already done! Ms. EV
