Now that I have your attention, let me clarify. Of course, this election matters. All elections matter to some degree and in some sense. But, if you are a Christian, then neither this nor any other election matters in terms of who you are and what you are supposed to be and do. That is, regardless of who wins the election the following truths always hold:
The Great Commission is still in force (Matt. 28:18-20). If Trump wins, as Christians we are still commanded to make disciples of Jesus wherever we are and wherever we go.
We are still to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16). If Clinton wins, as Christians we are still to be a Christ-like example and influence wherever we live, doing good works so that others may be drawn to God.
The Great Commandment still applies (John 15:12). Whether or not your candidate wins, (and maybe especially if your candidate wins!) we are still to love one another just as Christ has loved us.
We are still to love our enemies (Matt. 5:43-44). Even if the candidate you detest wins and all his/her supporters rub it in your face . . . well, you know what Jesus said to do.
The Golden Rule is still true (Matt. 7:12). When all this comes back around in four years, let’s remember to treat others as we would like to be treated.
We are still to submit to and pray for those in authority (Rom. 13:1-7; Titus 3:1; 1 Pet. 2:13-14; 1 Tim. 2:1-2). Regardless of whether Trump, Clinton, Johnson, Stein, or a write-in candidate wins, we are still to obey the laws of the land and pray for our leaders, including those we detest. Maybe we do need to pray that they repent or leave office! But we also should ask God to work in him/her, and give godly counsel, wisdom, and discernment even if those are not characteristics we have seen so far.
So, yes, elections and politics do matter. There are serious issues to consider. But when all is said and done, whether I live in a democratic republic or in some form of monarchy, socialist state, under a fascist or communist dictator, in a theocratic totalitarian state, or in anarchic conditions, I still have to follow Rom. 12:1-2 and, on the personal level, be transformed more and more every day into the image of Jesus.
