One Nation, Under God - An Inaugural Address

Mark 12:31 (NIV)

The Bible Says... “Love your neighbor as yourself”

Just A Dash

Inauguration Day in the United States marks the exchange of power from one administration to the next, and today’s Inauguration Day signals the beginning of an administration committed to unifying our nation.

Over the past several months, our nation has experienced one of the most divisive and contentious political seasons of our time. These proceedings culminated in riotous acts at our nation's capital that shook the very fabric of our democracy. We were reminded again how divided our nation is, despite our pledge to be “One Nation, Under God, Indivisible”.

One surprising place this division has been seen is in The Church - all of a sudden, we got so wrapped up in defending our political affiliations that we seemed to have forgotten our marching order. We forgot that our first affiliation is to God the Father, above all else.

Earlier this week, my good brother Darryl Henderson shared a post that said:

“Don’t let the elephants and the donkeys make you forget that you belong to The Lamb”.

A Pinch More

As believers, our loyalty and allegiance are to God before the Republic.

Like it or not, we aren’t commanded to be loyal to any particular party or candidate for leadership. In fact, our orders are simply to FIRST, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and with all your strength” and THEN to “Love your neighbor as yourself”.

You see, it doesn’t matter what side of the aisle we’re on; we will NEVER look into the eyes of someone that God does not love. And it is our duty to love each one of our neighbors as we love ourselves.

God has elected each and every one of us for such a time as this. We may have a new President of The United States, but we are far from under new management. We are today, as we have always been, One Nation, Under God.

Q: Who is your allegiance to, and how are you showing up to serve?

Q: How do you demonstrate love to your neighbors, both foreign (non-believers) and domestic (believers)?
