With all the political stuff I’ve been posting lately, this sermon clip from Darrin Patrick is a great reminder about our priorities as politically-invested Christians:
It bears repeating: “Our ultimate hope is in Jesus, not in some candidate.” I absolutely believe that Christians should be involved in the political process. We need to know where we stand on the issues and why, and we have a responsibility to know the same about the candidates vying for our votes.
But at the end of the day, we need to realize that no politician (not even Ron Paul!) is going to fix what’s wrong with the world. In the same way, we need to realize that no politician (not even Barack Obama!) is responsible for what’s wrong with the world, or capable of screwing it up beyond Christ’s capacity to set it right again.
