In the early morning hours of creation, God went to the voting booth. His ID was written in the newly created wisps of the clouds. His punch-card chiseled from the canyons of the earth. No hanging-chads here. And when He pulled back the curtain, it was done. Beforehand, He knew exactly for whom He was to cast His vote.
At the end of the day, when the booths closed and the signs went down, there was one definite choice. One who emerged as victorious. One who would rule and reign over the greatest and smallest.
When God cast His ballot, He voted for one. And that ‘one’ is you.
You – A loosing candidate riddle by the choice of sin. You – Showing zero in the polls and no hope of life. You – reeking of death from your hypocrisy and guilt. And yet, all it took was one vote and your life was saved. He transferred defeat to his Son Jesus and gave you the conquest. No more campaigning. No more pleading. No more speeches rehearsing your worthiness for His vote. They didn’t impress Him anyway. But in the moment and out of His love for you, He made you his choice.
God Votes, and He votes for you.
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
