Voting

Intro:

This coming Tuesday, November 5 is Election Day.

As a pastor I cannot tell you directly who to vote for but I can show you from the scriptures how you should vote.

In fact, it is my duty to do so because I am to preach and teach the whole counsel of God.

Government is one of the three institutions ordained by Almighty the others being the family and the church.

Scriptures on Government

Romans 13:1-7 (quickview) 

1 Peter 2:13-14 (quickview) 

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (quickview) 

We are commanded to pray for our leaders.

We are pray for them to be saved.

Acts 5:29 (quickview) 

When the law goes against what God says then to obey God.

I. Economic Issues Vs. Moral Issues

Often people will vote for a candidate based on whether or not that person promise to put more money in their pockets.

Promises to improve the economy so people will be able obtain more material things.

Often this is done without any regard to the candidate’s character or stand on moral issues.

Scriptures

God promises if put Him first, obey Him, live for Him then he will provide our material needs.

Proverbs 14:34 (quickview) 

Notice what makes a nation great.

Not its economic wealth.

Although I do believe a righteous nation will receive the blessings of God of which economic wealth is one.

Psalm of David, king of Israel and talks about a leader should be a person of character.

The scriptures says that we should "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteous and all these things shall be added unto you". When I read this it lets me know that the Lord provides for us. However when we look at the plight of our country how can we say that people don''t think about the economic condition of our nation. I don''t know anyone who are in their right mind who doesn''t want food, water, shelter and clothing. These things are necessary. Whenever an inividual runs for office they always say they are going to turn the economy around. It doesn''t matter whether they profess to be a believer or a non-believer, they still promise to help the ecomony get better. Since I''ve been voting this has been the discussion. The problem I have with the people who are voting is that they make the person who they vote for their savior and forget about the Savior. Our trust should be totally in the Lord. I agree that the believer is required to pray. Our responsibility is to cover our leaders with prayer and stand in the gap for them, then we should trust the Father. I vote for Jesus!
