“Politics is far more
complicated than physics.”
Politics can be complicated, especially during election years. Sorting through candidates’ claims and qualifications. Listening to all the election rhetoric. Trying to distinguish between fact and fantasy.
But in spite of the political hoopla that elections generate, they provide a unique opportunity to choose those who make crucial decisions affecting almost every aspect of our lives. Many of life’s decisions are already made for us, but the vote gives us a say-so about who we want our representatives to be.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Some people take the approach of the country woman who disliked politicians altogether. “I don’t vote,” she said. “It just encourages them.” But not casting a vote is like refusing to take pills when you are sick...or not holding your breath underwater! Either way, in positive action or doing nothing, you make a choice that has lasting consequences.
YOUR GREATEST DECISION
Voting is important, but there’s another decision you will make that has much greater consequences than electing even the President.
There is someone who will eternally influence your life...someone who is waiting to see what you will decide about Him. That person is Jesus Christ, and the decision is whether you will accept or reject Him as your Savior. Let me explain.
You can take an active role in choosing or rejecting Christ; that is, you can consider all the evidence before deciding. Many others before you have taken a hard look at themselves and have seen that they are imperfect and incapable of pleasing a good and perfect God. In fact, that’s just what God’s Word, the Bible, says: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
The Bible also says that God loved us so much that He sent Jesus Christ as the payment, the satisfaction, for all the imperfection and sins in our lives: “Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” (1 Peter 3:18).
Finally, you must decide whether to trust Jesus Christ as your substitute and receive eternal life as a free gift, or choose to reject Him and suffer the consequences: “Whoever believes in the Son [Jesus Christ] has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him” (John 3:36).
Of course, you could ignore Christ or postpone any decision about His offer. But in reality, you would have already made a choice to reject Him—a less obvious “decision,” but just as binding.
DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!
Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself for you, dying in your place and rising from the grave to defeat the eternal consequences of sin—death. And you don’t have to be an Einstein to understand God’s simple and straightforward offer: trust in Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins and receive His free gift of eternal life.
By faith, choose Jesus Christ as your Savior—and choose Him today!
