Q: Should Christians get involved with politics?

A:

Not only does God intend for His people to be involved in the government, but He actually instituted a representative form of government. Exodus 18:21 says, “But select from all the people some capable, honest men who fear God and hate bribes. Appoint them as leaders over groups of one thousand, one hundred, fifty, and ten.”

The higher powers of government are ordained of God, according to Romans 13. So how do we make sure those high offices are filled with godly men and women? By getting involved! 

One way we can be involved is making sure we vote. You may not have thought about it this way before, but when we vote, our ballot becomes our seed. By seeking the direction of the Lord and voting in faith, we are sowing toward God’s will coming to pass in our nation.
