Listening to the news sources I envision sort of a ‘doomsday’ outcome for our Nation, but I know there is a rational reasoning. If Joe Biden, indeed, becomes our President everything will change…EVERYTHING! The Social Liberals who seem to dominate the Democrats have plans to change America from her Constitutional moorings. This certain strikes concerns of fear in my heart.
At this moment, President Trump’s Legal Team is doing its dead level best to steer the hopes of his election for a 2nd term in the White House. This Team seems to have a plan to get the Supreme Court to send the conclusion to the state legislatures and/or the House of Representatives in Congress. This seems to be the only hope America has for a good conclusion to this 2020 Presidential Election.
But wait! There is more, much more. The final word has yet to be determined. What about the Church? What are we to do? Jesus clearly points to many things, but here are three examples from our Lord:
Matthew 5:9, “The peacemakers are blessed, for they will be called sons of God.”
Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth.”
Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world.”
No doubt, each Believer has taken a particular view of both of these events unfolding in our Nation. While each of us is affected by these decisions we must be involved because whether we like it or not we have the moral obligation to be peacemakers, salt and light in our local communities.
Notice that Jesus says, “the peacemakers are blessed, for they will be called the sons of God.” Realizing the truth of these words can only be known if, indeed, His Followers are the salt and light of the world. And we cannot be the salt if we are not somehow calming tensions and we cannot be the light if we are not proclaiming the Good News.
Jesus is Lord.
