5 reminders for Christians this election cycle

Here are five reminders for Christians during this election.

show respect to all

When people favor one candidate over another, they will usually put down or insult the other candidate; But it should not even be mentioned among the believers of Christ. Christians should give “Respect to whom respect is due, to whom respect is due” (Romans 13:7), and that includes the president. we are told by jesus “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s” (Matthew 22:21).

pray for our leaders

I am very upset to see politicians attacking each other and not the issues. Rather we should discuss policies rather than individuals. The Apostle Paul wrote, “I urge that prayers, intercessions, intercessions and thanksgivings be offered to all people, to kings and all those in high positions, so that we may live a peaceful and quiet life, which is godly and honorable in every way. “ (1 Timothy 2:1-2). But wait! Didn’t Paul know who the leader was? Nero was an evil man who used Christians as torches during his dinner parties. So why pray for this type of leader? Because God says so in His Word, and that should be reason enough for us.

trust in the sovereignty of God

God has dominion over all that happens; And we must trust him in all circumstances, even when we are left with evil rulers in positions of power. God is not taken by surprise. In ancient Israel, God often used wicked kings as punishment because he gave them the leadership they deserved. He can do that with this country and other countries as well, and that’s fine because “He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and appoints kings.” (Daniel 2:21). That’s why I trust God. He knows what he’s doing, and it doesn’t matter if we don’t.

god is not a democrat or a republican

The Republican Party or the Democratic Party is not the party of God because God does not associate himself with any cause or any human form of government. Nor does it favor one candidate over another. We should vote with our conscience. I choose to vote for candidates who are pro-life, so I don’t necessarily vote along party lines. I vote on moral grounds and for the candidate who will stand up for the right of the born. That’s why I believe we should vote according to our conscience. For me right to life is a bigger issue than economy.

keep it clean

We should never be nasty, argumentative, or divisive about who we’re voting for. Just because we think it is right to vote for a particular candidate, it does not stop us from arguing or debating with those who do not agree with us. We already have enough controversy among politicians. We don’t need to involve ourselves in mudslinging.


In this election, remember to be respectful of all the candidates; praying for the men and women who are currently in power; trust in the sovereignty of God and vote what your conscience tells you, which should be guided by Scripture; And don’t get into arguments about who you think the others should vote for.

May God richly bless you,
