Because of the recent events on the political scene, there are a lot of people who will be very distressed, angry, and depressed. There are also a lot of people who feel that their voice was heard and may be tempted to gloat or parade their victory. Then there are the people who feel like their very future and lives are now at risk because they may be afraid that there will be no place for them and they may even be afraid they will face "persecution". None of these fears should be taken lightly by those of us who are Christians. In respect to our country, we need to reach out to others in order to hold it together. But in a much greater sense, we have an awesome opportunity to share the Hope that surpasses all of our earthly foundations. We can have the opportunity to show we have no need to fear the future for the One who holds the future in His hands has it all in control. Finally, we can show that we do not need to be smug or arrogant because we have LOVE for our neighbor! I encourage everyone to be about the business of being the ambassadors of the Kingdom of God now, today! Be that person whose love is unmistakably from above and cannot be found apart from Christ!!!
