It is now time to vote.

This is election day for the UK.

We live in a world where we can not take it for granted that we will have the preservation of our freedoms. The continued right to preach the gospel, (our main responsibility). We, (Christians), have always had to fight for the right to freely live and practice our Christian faith.

Paul says, “Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.” (1 Corinthians 7:21). If you have to live as a slave, make the best of it, but if you can be free, “use it.”

We should be doing what we can to maintain our freedom to live for, worship and serve, our God.

Voting is an opportunity to promote, protect, and preserve godly government. Passing up that opportunity means letting those who would denigrate the name of Christ have their way in our lives. The leaders we elect—or do nothing to remove—have great influence on our freedoms.

Jesus said for us to “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:21). Our government has called on us to vote for the government that we feel is the best government to serve our country. We have a responsibility to God to do this to the best of our ability.

“[God] removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, And knowledge to them that know understanding: (Daniel 2:21)

Today, we have been given the opportunity to use our vote, in His service to bring about the best government possible at this time.

I will not tell you who to vote for, but I suggest you get on your knees before God and seek his wisdom, then exercise your opportunity to vote.

  1. It is interesting to note, that God ordains the govt. (Romans 13 v 1) but we have a responsibility to vote. He is sovereign but man is responsible.

    In a simiilar way – God ordains who will be saved (Acts 13 v 48) but we have a responsibility to turn to Christ.
