Sermon: Election Season

Scripture: Matthew 5, Matthew 6


This week, we addressed the intense political climate of an election year and how believers can navigate it faithfully. We compared the current political tensions with the historical context of Jesus’ time and explored His teachings on being peacemakers, loving our enemies, and living with an eternal perspective.

Key Points:

1. Be a Peacemaker: In the midst of political turmoil, Jesus calls us to be peacemakers (Matthew 5:9). This means actively creating peace and not contributing to division, even while holding strong political convictions.

2. Love Without Condition: Jesus teaches us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:43-44). In today’s political climate, this means showing unconditional love to those with whom we disagree.

3. Live for Eternity: Jesus reminds us to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33). Keeping an eternal perspective helps us prioritize God’s kingdom over earthly politics.


1. Reflect on Your Role as a Peacemaker:

   - In what ways can you actively create peace in your interactions, both online and in person, during this election season?

2. Practice Unconditional Love:

   - How can you demonstrate love and respect towards those who have different political views from yours?

   - What practical steps can you take to pray for and bless those who oppose your political beliefs?

3. Maintain an Eternal Perspective:

   - How does focusing on God’s kingdom help you navigate the uncertainties and anxieties of the political landscape?

   - What changes can you make in your daily life to prioritize seeking God's kingdom and His righteousness?


Ask God to help you be a peacemaker, to love others unconditionally, and to live with an eternal perspective. Pray for wisdom and discernment to navigate the political climate in a way that honors Him.
