If Romney wins, then, but if Obama wins…

Tuesday, our country will elect a president. As a fan of politics, and in-person viewer of two inaugurations, I’ve been paying attention. I believe the results will have an enormous impact on the future of our country.

Here are my plans if Romney wins, and then if Obama wins…

 

If Romney wins…

1. I’ll still see Jesus as my king. While I’ll work to live as a good citizen on Earth, I’ll focus most on “thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.” As Petra sang in the mid-80’s, “We are strangers, we are aliens…we are not of this world.”

2. I’ll pray for him. While I’ll try to remember to pray for him daily, I won’t commit to this for fear of breaking the commitment, but he’ll absolutely be the subject of many of my prayers. 1 Timothy 2:2 says, “Pray…for kings and all who are in authority…”

3. I’ll love my family. I love my wife and Parker and Fisher. We love our time together, prayers together, playing games together, etc. That love will grow.

4. I’ll stand challenged to help those in need. My life changed as I read Isaiah 58:10, “And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, your light will rise in the darkness, and your darkness will become like the noonday.” I plan to focus on serving Him by serving them more effectively. This will impact how I spend my time, money and focus.

 

But if Obama wins a second term, then…

1. I’ll still see Jesus as my king. While I’ll work to live as a good citizen on Earth, I’ll focus most on “thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.” As Petra sang in the mid-80’s, “We are strangers, we are aliens…we are not of this world.”

2. I’ll pray for him. While I’ll try to remember to pray for him daily, I won’t commit to this for fear of breaking the commitment, but he’ll absolutely be the subject of many of my prayers. 1 Timothy 2:2 says, “Pray…for kings and all who are in authority…”

While I have some definite perspectives on this race (some of which I’ll tweet before Tuesday), these are the things most important to me. Thankfully, the political situation of our country doesn’t change any of life’s most important perspectives.
