"Our hope is not in earthly power"

November 1st, 2020

Politics is about who is in charge and who can make change in the world—and it's often connected to status, significance, and victory. But following Jesus gives you a different perspective on power. Jesus asks us to follow him by taking up our cross, which means embracing the humility and struggle that come along with loving our neighbor. Instead of constantly trying to amass power for ourselves, whether individually or politically, we take the posture of servants and know that our hope is in God.

Application Questions:

  1. How have you pursued the way of glory—increasing greatness, success, and significance—in your own life? 
  2. Are there any ways God is calling you to take up your cross, serve others in obscurity, and humble yourself? 
  3. How does this affect the way you think about political change in general, and the election this week?
