Don't you just wish the election was over? Aren't you just sick and tired of the election adds? Wouldn’t it be nice to just get back to normal commercials? If you said yes to these questions you probably fit in with most Americans. Furthermore, there are some who are so sick and tired of them that they would wish that elections would just go away forever. They don’t want to hear any more about it. They don’t want to hear any more about what ‘he’ did, or what ‘she’ said. They are sick and tired of all the lies and likely think: ’you just can’t believe any of them. Politicians, they are all just a bunch of lying crooks!’ Sadly, there is a level of truth to this view, but there is a lot more to this story.
First, let me say that the real need of this country is revival! We need the “Church” in this country to go back to being the people of God! We need (including myself) to become Godly once again. We need to become Christ-like. We need to have our hearts set on fire with the love of God so that we can become the people of God that He wants us to be. (See 2 Chronicles 7:14). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chronicles+7%3A14&version=KJV" target="_blank">http://https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Chronicles+7%3A14&version=KJV
Having said that, I also believe that we (as Christians) have a responsibility to also be good citizens. That we have a responsibility not only to God, but to our fellow citizens. In a practical sense, part of the reason that we are in the mess that we are in is because we have not been involved. We have not spoken out, we have not voted, we have not run for office or supported those who have. Yes, much of what is wrong in this country is our fault! It has been said that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing!
It is past time for us to wake up! It is past time for us to get up and speak up! The hope of our nation depends upon it! We must do this for ourselves! We must do this for our fellow citizens! We must do this for our children and our grandchildren! It is far too late! The danger is far too real! The evil is far too strong and we must stand up against it! It is time for us to get out and vote!
