Well, it’s election season and the vast majority of the people in this country and leaders throughout the world have refocused on our country and the impending change in leadership that is about to happen. No matter which party you favor or candidate that you are considering, change is coming. Our country will either elect our first female president or our first billionaire president. Either way, change is coming. As the world watches our unique political situation unfold through media of all types, I am left to wonder, as a follower of Christ, what is really going to change?

Now sure, fearmongering on both sides says that my life is going to get better or worse depending on whom I listen to. The truth I am told is that people are going to die by weapons, drugs, changing climate, poverty, and many will be killed before they take their first breath, all in the name of freedom. Prosperity is at stake and the well-being of my children’s lives are on the line. Christianity and the freedom I have to go to church may be on the line too. I can’t help but feel the tug and the anxiety of the decision at hand. However, amidst all the noise, all the political entertainment, all the passions and fears that grab for my attention, I hear a quiet voice.

Brother and Sisters, nothing is changing! The world is still our temporary home. There will always be poor, sick, and dying people. God is still in control. Don’t succumb to the fear and hate in this world and in the process forget that God is out to redeem us and this world. Since the time of Christ, countries have come and gone. Christians have worshiped in public and hidden in catacombs. Their faith has led to their physical death and to their eternal life. The author of the book of Hebrews reminds us that we have no permanent city, no permanent world or place to call our own. We wait for the permanent dwelling to come. (Heb 13:14)

Throughout this next week, whether at the poll, or in your neighborhood, or at church, you will find people all around you are afraid and worried and this is your opportunity be Love and Hope. Pray that God will bring peace to all you encounter and that the love you show will lead people to discover the true leader, Jesus.
