Dear Reading Friends, have you noticed how the world really wants you to take sides? Pick a view; take a side; demand your rights; never back down! With an election coming up, taking sides seems really important. The battle lines are being drawn between a few men and women who claim to be able to deliver us from our woes. It’s important that we obey the authorities over us, but as Christians, whose side are we on?
Christians have wondered over the centuries which side of certain leaders they should take. Whose arguments are most sound? How can we trust what is said? Who is telling the truth? What’s best for us? What’s best for the country?
But isn’t life, family, and eternity about so much more than which political side we’re on? Oh, there are certainly arguments to be made for one side over another of an issue, sure, but the Kingdom of God is before us. Christ will soon come for His Church, and then He will reign forever as Sovereign!
While everyone is arguing about a political side, let’s fix our gaze a little higher, upon the spiritual side, and find ways to share the gospel while there is time. After all, the Lord will one day sort out all the governments and views, politicians and lawyers. Let’s be on God’s side, embracing His will in spirit and in truth, no matter which state or country we’re in. What does God desire? Let that be our question, and let’s live accordingly!
