Right now, the United States is in a presidential election season. Two men are running for the highest office in the land. Your family and friends have probably asked you ‘who will you vote for?’ Pundits want to know who you will vote for. Pollsters want to know who you will vote for. And of course, the candidates simply say, ‘vote for me.’
But right now, I want to let you know that there is an election going on that is more important than the presidency of the United States. In this election, two candidates are vying for the highest place in your heart. And yours is the only vote that matters.
One candidate promises you pleasure right now. But he doesn’t tell you that there will be pain later. This candidate will let you stay right where you are in life and let you keep on doing whatever you want to do. This smooth-talking candidate looks sharp and sounds smart. He will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you to cast your vote for him. This candidate’s name is Satan.
The other candidate tells you upfront that life will not be a bed of roses for you. But after your life, you will spend eternity in a place full of peace and harmony. This candidate will change your life and rock your world. He may not tell you everything you want to hear, but at least he will tell you the truth. This candidate’s name is Jesus Christ.
Both of these candidates want your heart. Both of these candidates want your soul. I want to encourage you to cast your vote for Jesus Christ.
