The True Leader of the Free World

I don’t know how you voted and I certainly won’t reveal how I voted, but I can say this as a Christ-follower, American, and patriot that no matter who sits in the Oval Office, Jesus remains King of Kings and He is not phased. We the people, and especially those of us who follow and serve the Savior, have more to do with the future of our nation and our world than anyone else. Though the President may be called the “Leader of the Free World,” Jesus remains the true leader of all who are truly free. Tonight as you go to bed, regardless of your political leanings, remember this: 

Isaiah 9:6-7 – For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!

If you truly love Jesus and this country, I will ask you to neither rage nor gloat, but instead, gird your loins and prepare to shine Christ’s light during a time when our country is sure to plunge into further division. Regardless of who would have won this particular election, our nation needs us more than ever to be salt and light.
