Acts 11:17 - Bible Quote of the Day

"So if God gave them the same gift as he gave us, who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could oppose God?"

Okay so there's not a Roman centurion in sight, and this election isn't a Jews vs Gentiles thing, but the words of Simon Peter are worth keeping in mind during another hot and nasty presidential election.

Lest we risk the blasphemy of declaring our candidates are His standard-bearers (and our support of them is God's work), we need to simply pray for guidance, behave like Christians should, and use the power of reason He gave us to decide whom to vote for and how best to help our team get elected.

His will be done either way. He never said we were always gonna like it.
