Christians, Your Vote and Your Prayers Need To Match

We are in the election season—a very contentious election season. Christians need to be involved in choosing who will serve as the civil magistrates in federal, state, and local elections. But Christians do not vote in the same way as those in the population at large. Our reasons behind who we vote for should be different. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says “whether we eat or drink or whatever you do (whatever you do includes voting), do all to the glory of God.” In order to vote to the glory of God, our vote must be informed by Biblical principles—not political ones.
 
One passage of Scripture that I have found very helpful in this regard is 1 Timothy 2:1-4. As part of living out the Christian life, Paul says, “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” Believers are supposed to pray for men of all sorts, but special attention is given to praying for civil magistrates. Before we get to the significance of the things we are to pray, let’s consider a couple things the Bible has to say about choosing those civil magistrates.

Every person who has ever existed has been wired by God to worship. Everybody worships something. There are no exceptions to that. But by God’s grace, the Lord has transformed the hearts of believers to delight in worshiping Him. Certainly we worship the Lord personally. We worship the Lord in many ways throughout the week. But there is something special about worshiping the Lord together with fellow believers. …..

God loves His church. Jesus Christ gave His life for His church and is the Head of the church. The Holy Spirit calls out and empowers the church for life and ministry. Therefore we feel it is an awesome privilege and tremendous responsibility to be an active part of a local church.
 
At Two Rivers Community Church we try to take that privilege and responsibility seriously. Our goal is to be God-centered and Biblically sound in all that we do.
 
  •      We seek to emphasize sound doctrine, devotion to God, and a daily lifestyle that is God-honoring.
  •     We want to be known for our love and unity and welcoming spirit.
  •     We want to equip and encourage households to be embassies for the kingdom of God.
  •     We want to be a part of our Lord’s commission to make the nations Christ’s disciples.
                     
… to the praise of His glorious grace
 
We would love to have you join us.
