Proper 18

It is impossible to forget that it is an election year. Once again we will put the next few years of our lives into the hands of our newly elected officials. It is easy to think that we are in control. Paul’s letter to the Romans gives a different image of our election year.

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” Romans 13:1

Those whom are elected to office are there under God’s authority. They are to act on His behalf. Whether they make good decisions or bad, our ever faithful God will work His glory.

May our elected officials always know that they too are to ever seek God’s will and that Christ died for them so that they may have His eternal home.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
