Christians and Politics #1: "Why Christians Vote" 10/9/2022

Matthew 6:9-10

  • “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
    • God’s Kingdom COME. Be on earth as His Kingdom IS in heaven.
      • We pray for this. Sometimes every day.
      • This prayer is summoning God’s kingdom in heaven to have influence and have its reality here on earth. Today. Now. Not in the future.
      • God’s Kingdom coming is
        • The King providing for His people (daily bread)
        • Forgiveness as a habit (forgive us our trespasses…)
        • The temptation toward selfishness would cease (lead us not…)
        • The King delivering us from evil 
        • For the kingdom, power, and glory is God’s!
        • And we say AMEN. So be it. 
        • And hopefully, we act in accordance with what we’re praying for.
