Holding the Future

November 9, 2016

The responses from professing Christians that I've been reading about yesterday's presidential election have been pretty interesting. I'm not sure what to make of them. Some are talking as if the world would have ended had Hillary won, while others are talking that way because Trump won. I'm puzzled. I thought Jesus Christ was our Lord and Savior. This morning's reading from "The Daily Light," written more than a hundred years ago, pretty well sums up my convictions on the matter.

“I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior.”—There is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.—“There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” --from Isaiah 43:11, 1 Timothy 2:5, and Acts 4:12.

I wish Mr. Trump the best, and will pray for him as I have been praying for president Obama, for wisdom and humility, strength and grace to endure this most difficult job. And I am thankful tonight that the election is over, and that though we don't know what the future holds, we know who holds the future.
