I decided to join the celebrations by checking the twitter feed this morning. It’ always an interesting task. Here’s three tweets that made me smile! It’s best if you read them out loud in your best American accent! (Note, they are not my tweets and are the opinions of those who tweeted them only)
‘Everyone at school all like, yay Romney! Then on Tumblr they’re all like, yay Obama! Then I’m all like, what is politics? Is that food?’
‘After today we can replace political ads with Christmas songs’
‘Yay Obama! He was bound to win, Mitt Romney is an arse’
These 3 quotes did make me chuckle for the following reasons. Firstly, it’s clear that these tweeters, like many of us, don’t really understand all the politics and yet want to publicise their views, Christmas songs are a relief to political ads and well Romney is apparently only part human, in particular, the middle regions.
The range of strong opinions in this election isn’t too different from those of Jesus. Many people speak all kinds of opinions about him but don’t really understand his agenda. Many would prefer Christmas songs to take the place of anything Jesus-related and some are quick to insult and attack.
And yet, I believe that Jesus is the only hope of this nation and all others. A guy called Rick Warren from the USA tweeted, ‘Our hope is not in the man we put in the White House but in the Man we put on the Cross.’
Our hope is in the man who was nailed to a cross and left to die, but who rose again, defeating death and reconnecting us with a Holy, Perfect, Creator God.
If you are looking for hope, security, purpose, meaning, stability and a rock to stand on – then Jesus is your ideal candidate. Jesus is the one to vote for. Make him the president of your life and you have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
If you have enjoyed reading this post – I’d be really grateful if you would help get this message further by sharing it on your Facebook / twitter profile. Cheers.
