As we close in on election day, and we mark our ballots for President of the United States of America, let us remember this truth.  No matter who wins on Tuesday, our Savior and King is not that person.  It is Jesus Christ.  And long after the dissolution of this nation - which will come in the end - Jesus will still be alive and will restore all that is good.

"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." - Colossians 3:2

How many times do we try to make Christianity way more complicated than it has to be?  The simple truth is that to live a life for Jesus only requires two basic things: To love Him more than anything else of this world, and to love others.  Simple right?  Then why do we make it so hard?  In a world where "busy" is a buzzword and seems to be a sign of accomplishment, we want to make Christianity the same way. Do more. Checklist more.  When if we would just focus on the heart of God - loving Christ and loving others - then life would be so much more fulfilling, the world would be more peaceful, and we wouldn't be spinning our wheels and all our energy with being "busy."  Let's make a promise today.  Let's focus on Him and others, and let's see how much less frazzled we feel.  When we put into practice His two greatest commands - which are very simple -  everything else will fall into place.

God, I pray that you give us peace in knowing that a fulfilled life can only come you and your word.
