3 Things to Do on Election Day

It’s been a very turbulent political season in the United States, and now the election is finally here. So much is at stake for the nation. However, in this time of division and unrest, I thought I’d share three things that I’m going to do today. I hope that you will join me.

  1. Pray for America—not just for this election, though we certainly need to pray for God’s will to be done. But in a greater way, I want to pray for the nation itself. You see, even though the presidential candidates promise that their policies and plans will bring about a cultural revolution, America’s problem is not political or governmental—it’s ultimately spiritual. A spiritual problem needs a spiritual solution, and the solution—the only solution—is the gospel of Jesus Christ. I will be praying that God will open the eyes of the church to wake up and be the witness that they need to be of God’s love, truth, and salvation. Pray for this nation to repent of murdering millions of children through abortion and perverting God’s institution of marriage.
  2. Vote. In a day when our rights as Americans, especially Christians, are being increasingly threatened, we need to exercise our right to vote for the candidate that we have prayerfully decided upon. We also need to pray that God will protect the freedoms, such as religious liberty, we currently enjoy in America and that He will give us courage to stand uncompromisingly for our right to proclaim the truth.
  3. Fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13). The Bible says that this is “the whole duty of man.” God asks for us to fear, or reverence, Him. Sadly many do not fear the Lord. “There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Romans 3:18). However, God promises, “He will bless those who fear the Lord" (Psalms 115:13). God also tells us to keep His commandments (i.e. to love Him and to love one another). We need to be dedicated to serving and loving the Lord with our minds, hearts, and souls, and not be distracted with worry or division. We also should love our neighbors, and what better way to love them than to share the gospel, fulfilling yet another one of Christ’s commandments: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).

On this unsettling day in America, let’s find peace in knowing that God is in control and that, whatever the result, nothing is beyond His knowledge.
