Yes, it’s true. On November 8 when the election of the President of the United States of America was taking place, I shared the gospel with a person whose life has been utterly ruined by sin. What a victorious privilege, that on the day that Americans were casting their vote for next leader of this country, I had an opportunity to speak about the most important person who has ever lived, and whose message is the only one that really counts, and whose claims of identity cost his own blood on a cross – Jesus Christ, Crucified.
What a juxtaposition?!?!
On the day that one of the most powerful offices on earth was up for a vote, I was able to share a message from the King of kings and Lord of Lords.
On the day that Americans decide the transfer of power, I was able to speak about the one person whose power can raise the dead to life.
On the day that Americans decide on how best to address our societal woes, I was able to share the one person who can and does restore all things and makes them new.
On the day that Americans make a choice for what they believe is the best path for security, I was able to share the one person who can forgive sins and grant security forever.
Yes, it’s true. I had the victorious privilege to share the unchanging glorious gospel of Jesus Christ that provides hope far beyond the life of America. And yes, I cast my vote at the ballot box. But I did so with a deep sense of peace that one day, the Prince of Peace will return and rule this earth with righteousness and justice.
