The statistics are staggering. Over 15 million Christians are not registered to vote. Because we know the importance of voting, the urgency in this space and time to do so, as well as the incredible privilege that many were denied in history, this is the time to vote and make your voice known.

We realize that social and political unrest have caused great tension, anxiety and even depression. Please find a class from our Class Theme Resource at the end of this article.

You have all become true children of God by the faith of Jesus the Anointed One! It was faith that immersed you into Jesus, the Anointed One, and now you are covered and clothed with his anointing. And we no longer see each other in our former state—Jew or non-Jew, rich or poor, male, or female—because we’re all one through our union with Jesus Christ with no distinction between us. Galatians 3:26-28

We are one and unified through Him. It doesn’t matter our social status, gender, Jew, or Gentile, we are in union with Him.

Ponder the Amplified version:

For you [who are born-again have been reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified and] are all children of God [set apart for His purpose with full rights and privileges] through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ [into a spiritual union with the Christ, the Anointed] have clothed yourselves with Christ [that is, you have taken on His characteristics and values]. There is [now no distinction in regard to salvation] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you [who believe] are all one in Christ Jesus [no one can claim a spiritual superiority].

 As we enter into one of the most pivotal elections perhaps in our lifetime, we at CYA urge you to pray, fast, and vote.

 Three Reasons Why Christians Should Vote

As Americans, we are allowed the unique opportunity to influence our laws. For Christians, this means we must bring our biblical worldview to the public square.

Instead of kings who wield absolute power for entire lifetimes, America was established as a nation ruled by the people. The government’s ability to wrest power from the people was reined in by an ingenious system of checks and balances. But what is often missed by pundits today was the expectation of our Founding Fathers, all of whom held great reverence for God and Scripture, that leaders possess a moral compass, and that virtue, justice, and righteousness were essential for government not to trample on the God-given rights of the people.

George Washington warned America in his first inaugural address never to depart from its founding principles, which he clearly believed flowed from God. He declared, “the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.”

Christians share the same spiritual obligation our Founding Fathers felt to express our faith in the political and public sphere. Here are three reasons why:

  1. Political involvement demonstrates love for our neighbors.

Jesus told us in Matthew 22 that the greatest commandment is to love God with all that we are, and he went on to say that the second greatest commandment is to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Using our voice and our vote as Christians to influence the political landscape of our country is one way, we can show love to our neighbors. Good laws and a well-run government are essential to produce a flourishing society. Obeying these two commandments includes seeking legislation that protects the sanctity of life, religious freedom, marriage, and family, and that compassionately cares for those in need. Engaging in politics allows us to effect change and is essential for believers who love their neighbors.

  1. Political involvement demonstrates reverence for God.

Paul writes in Romans 13 that Christians should respect and be subject to their governing authorities because “there is no authority except that which God has established.”

The Bible explicitly expresses an obligation to our government that is derived from God’s authority. As Americans, we are allowed the unique opportunity to influence our laws. For Christians, this means we must bring our biblical worldview to the public square. If we begin to remove ourselves from politics, this opens the door for moral decay and culture shift, inevitably changing the direction of a government that honors God.

  1. Political involvement shows respect for the Bible.

2 Timothy tells us that, “all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

“Every good work” definitely includes leveraging our faith to influence politics in a way that seeks to build God’s kingdom on Earth. Believers must understand a biblical worldview speaks into every aspect of our lives, including some of today’s most controversial issues.

Voting is an opportunity for us to love our neighbor (Matthew 22) by using our voice and our vote to influence the political landscape of our country.  It’s an opportunity for us to live out biblical principles in every area of our lives as we become a source for good in our communities and our nation (Jeremiah 29:7).

Another verse that captures this idea well is Galatians 6:10, which says, “Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people.” And the previous verse is a powerful reminder to not give up and grow weary in doing good either.

It’s time for all of us across the nation to awaken Christians to civic engagement in America to see God’s principles advanced in our society. Our mission at My Faith Votes seeks to advance Jesus’ policies. We do not endorse any candidate or political party. Instead, we encourage Christians to bring the solutions of their faith into the ballot box.

Our nation’s Founding Fathers exercised their faith while serving in government. Let their example encourage everyday citizens like you and me to let our faith impact our nation, too.

In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain. For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.

Psalm 11:1-2 NIV

I’ve already run for dear life straight to the arms of God. So why would I run away now when you say,

“Run to the mountains, the evil

bows are bent, the wicked arrows

Aimed to shoot under cover of darkness

at every heart open to God.

The bottom’s dropped out of the country;

good people don’t have a chance”?

Psalm 11:1-2 The Message
