In the USA we are involved in a year long+ process of selecting a new president November 8, 2016. Donald Trump, Republican Party nominee and Hillary Clinton, Democratic Party nominee will be on the ballot as PRESIDENT of the USA. Each of these candidates are campaigning to get our vote. As important to the USA as this election is, it is not the most important thing that we need to be thinking about.
When we come to the end of our life it will not matter in what country we lived, or under what government leaders we were led. The ONLY thing that will matter is our belief in and relationship to Jehovah God through Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior. He is the one I’m following. He is the ONLY one who promises Eternal Life to all who are His disciples. Life and Destiny are His to give. No matter what our political leaders promise they cannot make it happen with God’s blessing of life.
James the brother of Jesus said this,
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”
14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” (Jas. 4:13-15 NIV)
20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. (Phil. 3:20-21 NIV)
