'Tis the Season to... Make Decisions!
The busiest retail time of the year is now upon us and if making a decision over what gift to buy Aunty May was not difficult enough, we also have a General Election looming.
The Bible is highly political with loads of examples of men and women engaging in political life. Jesus was also highly political. He spoke harsh words to leaders of the nations when they were uncaring of the needy.
In Exodus we see how Moses was a deeply political figure, and we begin to receive the laws that express God’s heart for good government.
Joshua shows the need for integrity of leadership, and a strong national identity in which morality is required as a distinctive for God’s people.
The books of 1 & 2 Kings chart the good, the bad and the ugly of how to govern. These books show how leaders are subject to greater accountability for their actions.
Ezra demonstrates the power of the Word to restore identity and direction to a people.
Jude attacks bad role models for leadership; and shows how when abused, authority can be abdicated.
Whilst the government may not always do what we believe is best, they have been put in place by God for his purposes. Paul affirms this stating - ‘Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.’ If that is the case, it will be our prayers and involvement in politics that will influence the people that God has put in place.
