I saw this at Joyfully Living for His Glory (Chelsey’s place). All I have to say is thank you Lord for raising up men who boldly speak the truth.
What John Piper says here is what the Spirit has been speaking to my heart this whole election process.
I’ve read many posts by my favorite Christian women bloggers and the divide and passion on the subject of who should be president or vice president is huge. And in my flesh I can start to lean one way or the other, but neither side brings me peace. The only place I find peace is in surrender and on my knees, saying, “Lord. You are King over all. You raise up one and put down another. Love us enough Lord to chasten and rebuke us and revive us in passion and unity for the gospel and love for YOU!”
This election day I stand on my knees as one of God’s elect, casting my cares upon Him, because He cares for me and trusting in His Soveriengty and praying for our hearts (mine too) to be revived in passion for the love of Him who died for us!
