The 4th of July is a time when Americans celebrate our independence from an oppressive government more than 200 years ago. What's really interesting about the time we live in now is that millions of Americans are still fighting for their independence. However, in this case it's not from an oppressive government. They are actually fighting for their independence from the loving God. Watch the video to learn more…

"Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies." Romans 8:33
It's Election Day and everybody is talking about the candidates and who they are going to cast their votes for. Here in Georgia we have a small snapshot of Georgia's political legacy, considering those with politically famous names running for office including, Jason Carter (grandson of President Jimmy Carter), Michelle Nunn (daughter of former Senator Sam Nunn), and David Perdue (first cousin of former Governor Sonny Perdue).
Those who are not privy to walk in those political circles might tend to feel left out or helpless as it relates to wielding influence or receiving political favor. Fortunately, God doesn't look at last names to determine whether or not you're worthy to receive favors from Him. He is not a respecter of persons, His love is everlasting, and His mercy endures forever!
In fact, God voted for you when He chose His son to die on your behalf. And according to Revelation 5:9, you were elected you to the position of king and priest. So, whether you know it or not, as part of God's family you have a lot of royal responsibilities here on the planet (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).
"Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble." ~ 2 Peter 1:10
Just like politicians are supposed to serve their constituents, your election is connected to an assignment (life purpose) to solve a problem for a specific group of people. God called you to be great and do something that serves others in a significant manner. Your work matters to God and those whom you have been assigned to work with.
Peter admonished all Believers to acknowledge and accept our callings so that we would not fall short of the greatness God planned for us. When you embrace what God created you to do you put yourself in position for Him to give you influence to use for His glory. And the kickbacks you get from Him as a result of your obedience can't be compared to anything you could get from anyone else.
So no matter who you vote for today, just remember God already voted for you!
