Honor God With Your Vote This Election

5 Reasons YOU Should Vote

Honoring God With Your Vote

1. Government was instituted by God.

Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2 teach us that government was instituted by God, created with a purpose and responsibility: to punish evil and reward those who do good. Government is God’s societal institution of justice, a value so important to God, His Son died on the Cross to satisfy its requirements.

2. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE MINISTERS OF GOD.

Romans 13:4 calls a person in government a “minister of God,” meaning they are, in effect, servants of the Lord. Just as pastors are ministers of the church, elected officials are ministers of God in government; and they have a job to do for Him. This should change the way we view our elected officials. This is why the Bible calls the church to pray for, submit to, and honor those in authority (1 Tim. 2, Rom. 13, 1 Pet 2).

3. GOVERNMENT CAN'T PROPERLY DO ITS JOB WITHOUT THE CHURCH.

How do governments of the world determine good and evil? Left on their own, governments often get it wrong. Government needs the church to provide a standard and to give sound counsel on what the Lord has called good and evil (1 Tim. 3:15b).

4. Laws matter

The law has never been able to save, but it is a moral teacher and shaper of culture (Gal. 2:16, 3:11, 4-5); and it is a revealer of God’s righteousness. Good leaders will pass laws that reflect God’s standards, guiding society toward what is right—laws that protect people by punishing evil and that make it easier to pursue righteousness.

5. YOU GET TO CHOOSE.

As Americans, we get to choose our ministers of government. As Christians we also know what God expects of government. He also expects us to be good stewards of this opportunity and to select the best possible qualified individuals to serve as ministers in government. Our right to vote is a gift God has given us to use to honor Him (Matt. 25:14-30).
