In these final days leading up to the election, we’re hearing claims that if elected, there will be a more aggressive approach to curing COVID19. We are also hearing a very optimistic view that this too will end. Who ever you choose to vote for, there really is no one here in our part of the solar system who can individually take on a disease – fix the economy – lead us back to our former glory – change the climate.
Unfortunately, we as a nation have come to depend on our leaders to make things right. We expect them to act a certain way, follow certain rules of behavior, become part of the establishment elite, fix all our problems and think that with the right one, we’ll be OK.
Guess what? There’s not a human being on this planet that can live up to those expectations. Our president must surround himself with the right people in order to do the job. Still, even with experts, there is no guarantee that life will be perfect because of the one who wins the office.
As this campaign winds down and the promises of the candidates fly rampantly over the air waves and into our minds, let’s remember the only human being who did everything right. He lived a life of poverty, humility, obedience, holiness, serving others and with one goal in mind. He healed people from diseases, brought them back to life, made the blind see and the deaf to hear. His short human existence lasted only 33 years. In that time, He led others to God, His Father. He inspired His followers with His Holy Spirit. He laid down his life for ever human being – past, present and future. He came alive again and sits as our true leader at the right hand of God. Because of Him, we have hope for a perfect existence in eternity.
There really is no other name in all the world that can compare to that of our brother, Jesus, the Son of God. Put your trust in Him alone.
