Good News for November

There will be good news on November 4th. You won’t hear it from your favorite media outlet or on your social media feed. Here it is: Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (1 Timothy 6:15). No matter who wins the election, Jesus is the reigning sovereign and ultimately in control of all things. He has defeated death on the cross and is working out everything for our good and his glory. If you believe this good news, it will affect your life.

1. If you believe this good news, you won’t be motivated by anxiety and fear.

Most of the political mailers that have come to my house have used fear tactics as a way to sway my opinion. Not that I pay much attention to them but their goal is to paint scenarios about possible outcomes if their candidate isn’t chosen. When you let these tactics sink in, you become more passionate about the November election than you do about the creator of the universe. Our two greatest motivators are fear and love. Let your love for Jesus and faith in him be the driving force behind your life.

2. If you believe this good news, you won’t be devastated by the outcome in November.

Just a reminder for us all, our hope is not in a politician. Neither Joe Biden nor Donald Trump will ever claim the title “Savior.” If your team doesn’t get into office, your attitude should not dramatically change. Christians have historically been people of hope even in the darkest of situations. Remember, this is a moment in history, but we know how the story ends.

3. If you believe this good news, you won’t wander from your purpose.

All of us are ambassadors for something. You might be pitching yourself, your political candidate, a lifestyle of some kind, or even a business. In 2 Corinthians 5:20, the Apostle Paul reminds us that we are supposed to be ambassadors of Christ. Pastor Joe preached a powerful message about this calling on Sunday.

One of the things he said was, “Those to whom we represent Christ make their judgment about Jesus by what they observe in us.” Our purpose then is to represent Jesus to our families, friends, co-workers, and strangers. Your assignment on earth is not to sway someone’s vote but to help them see Jesus’ great love for them and their need for Him.

When the good news of Jesus Christ sinks deep into your heart, you will have real peace and purpose, regardless of the season.
