As a Christian, I am a citizen of heaven. I belong heart, soul, mind, and strength to the Lord Jesus Christ. I am saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as seen in Scripture alone, for the glory of God alone. As an American Christian, I am a citizen of the USA. Therefore, I voted in person on Friday. I consider it a privilege.
As always, I voted thankfully and prayerfully. I did not vote solely for a single candidate or politician or personality, but for the party and coalition of people who I believe will prioritize more policies that uphold more of what God prioritizes in His Word, and fulfill God’s desire for His people in 1 Timothy 2:1-2. Ultimately, God is sovereign and He is the one who providentially puts rulers and authorities in power (Daniel 2:21; Rom. 13:1-2; 1 Peter 2:14). God’s will, decrees, and agenda will stand.
So I will praise Him no matter what the outcome and remain convinced that my job description as a Christian never changes: I am called to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength and my neighbor as myself; to preach the gospel to all (1 Cor. 9:16), do evangelism and discipleship (Matt. 28:18-20), engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs (Titus 3:14), all for God’s glory and the good of others until Christ comes again.
