God is Sovereign
You, O king, are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; in your hands he has placed mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds of the air. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold. Daniel 2:37-38
An election is coming and so we’ll have to choose a side. It seems like in this election the candidates have very disparate positions - To some, this makes the choice easy. But what about the choice you have to make about eternity? Is your mind made up? Have you cast your vote? Do you know what is at stake?
Not many of us realize, but every day is an election day regarding our future. Each day we can make a choice to follow Jesus Christ or not. For some, we have never made that all important decision, and for others despite our claims to follow Christ, we struggle with obeying God’s word in at least one area of our life. Yes the election of our government officials is an important event, but even more importantly is who we elect as our King.
Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:10-11
Because God is sovereign, with Christ as our King, we have eternal life.
