Election Day Desperation!

We are down to the wire today! Today both candidates will pull out the stops in their final desperation to get out the vote! Desperation - what does it bring out in you? For some it's the best - we perform well under pressure. For others desperation looks ugly and we buckle under pressure.

One of my college friends, Jackie Fuchs, said something poignant last week. She said "when there's a deadline, a goal, or a final end to a race we see desperation." And she wonders if we treat life's race to eternity with the same desperation. No one on this earth knows when Christ will return - we are just asked to be prepared. If we knew wouldn't we live life differently? How desperate would our plea be to those around us to choose Christ or to spread the Word that He is the One to choose?

Have you been involved in any political debates or discussions over this election? I hope that you will fight with the same vigor to share the gospel and convince people to choose Christ. These are desperate times when evil is called good and good is called evil.

2 Corinthians 5:20-6:2 says "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. As God's fellow workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain. For He says "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation."

Do you hear the desperation in the words "appeal, implore, urge, now, now"?

Stand for truth. Stand for truth at the polls - and stand for truth in your everyday life. I desperately ask you to vote tomorrow and then put it behind you - and go and be an ambassador for Christ. Be sure your loved ones and neighbors know - today is the day of salvation! They desperately need to choose Christ!

Walk with the King!
