The World Is Watching

Christians on voting day: the world is watching.photo source

Today the election ends.

The rancor, animosity, and malice shows no sign of abating. The nation is divided and the world shakes. There is trouble all around.

How will the people of God respond? The world is watching…

Like most of America, I have been caught up in the drama of this election, but today I am reminded that while I love America, it’s not my home. My citizenship lies elsewhere.

I don’t know what will happen today, but I am at peace because the One who knows is still on the throne.

“Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “ ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭4:8-11‬ ‭

How will you react, Christian, to the results of today? The world is watching.

What words will come out of your mouth?
How will you represent Him to those around?

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:15‬ ‭

Be at peace, and be thankful. Pray for our country. Pray for our next President.

The world is watching.
