In a politically charged society, it is easy to crisscross the line of spirituality and social politics. As a Biblical teacher and preacher, I very much want everyone to come to Christ. No matter what your politics are, I want you to know Jesus loves you. Jesus is not a politician. He is a servant leader. He is so concerned for your life! He does not want esteem or position. He only wants you to have true hope, peace and love.
No matter who you say you are politically, Jesus simple says, “I love you to the point of dying for you.” It does not matter which political party you claim. Does not matter your sexuality, gender or ethnic background. God so loved you, that He gave. John 3:16
Now, it is true, God wants the best for each of us. Often time, we make choices and decisions that takes us places we would rather not go. God has established a plan and a way which is best for each of us.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
The Kingdom of God is void of political agendas. The Kingdom of God is welcoming to everyone! The door of mercy is the entry way into God’s everlasting Kingdom. Forgiveness has come because Jesus was willing to lay down His very life. He never once had to give Himself a cost of living increase. He did not entertain lobbyist so he could outmaneuver His political opponent. He did not ask for pork or favors. He simply always loves!
All governments have a system by which they function. The Kingdom of God functions in the simplicity of a Sovereign God longing for a relationship with His children. His Kingdom is unlike any earthly organization. God does not divide us into subgroups.
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26-29
In politics we always see divide. The sides will never come together. In Christ we are one. We are always together in a bond of love because God is love! Many have brought division in the name of love, but the true Kingdom of God lives in the wisdom of Christ.
Wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17
Could you imagine if all political venues established themselves with the verse here in James? It is the Kingdom of God that has for every person an agenda of hope, peace and love. In a great attempt to connect with us, His creation, God is running for office. He wants very much to be voted as your heavenly father. Through Christ, He has campaigned for your heart. In love, God is reaching out to you!
