Kiss the Son

Yesterday's election was definitely disappointing. While I am not surprised that Obama won, I strongly disagree with Obama on a lot of issues and I think that a lot of his policies are going to be very damaging to this country. However, he is now our President-Elect. We must still respect him as such. As Christians, we are "to be submissive to rulers and authorities." (Titus 3:1) Obama does not need us to fight against him. What he needs is for us to pray for him. Please join me in praying that before it is too late, he will "kiss the Son."

Psalm 2

1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 3 "Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us." 4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. 5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, 6 "As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill." 7 I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, "You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." 10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Thanks for the reminder! Since I work with Barack Obama supporters, it can be hard not to put him down. But the Lord tells us again and again in His word to pray for those in authority over us--because He has appointed them! :)
