And Now We Know

So, it's time to get busy!

Did you vote for John McCain because you are pro-life? Great. Volunteer at your local crisis pregnancy center; support adoption; extend grace and friendship to a post-abortive woman; open your home and your wallet to a young woman who's chosen life for her unborn child. Do something.

Did you vote for Barack Obama because you are concerned about the poor and disenfranchised among us? Great! Start collecting cans for the local food bank; volunteer at homeless shelter; give your time and financial support to a single mom trying to make ends meet. Do something.

And just in case your not sure what I'm trying to say here...DO SOMETHING!

The world has voted for "change." But one thing has not and never will change: Jesus is on the throne. And we have a biblical mandate as citizens of heaven to be His feet and His hands to those around us regardless of who is in the oval office. The call for the body of Christ to act like the body of Christ would have remained exactly the same no matter who won the election. So, if you're rejoicing today -rejoice while you do something! If you're mourning today -stop it and rejoice that you can do something!

My motto from the beginning of this political season has been "Vote-- then get over it!" What's done is done. What will you do now?

Thank you for your perspective on life! Thank you for your courage to challenging us, speaking the truth, and telling us what we may not want to hear. Thank you for using your gift of words to show us so clearly how to put action in our feet to support the ideas we say we believe. May they know we are Christians by our love and our fruit, not by our yard signs and our vote. Keep Writing! Keep challenging!!
