2 more things to consider going into the election.
One, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are going to be fasting tomorrow. That means no food or drink for 2 meals or a 24 hours period. We start the fast with a prayer and our heart turned towards heaven for the things we need. I’ll be fasting for our country, and people worldwide, so that we can show that righteousness and justice is the right way to live, as well as some other things.
Two, I’ve been thinking a lot about the road every Christian must walk. First, you hear about Christ and the amazing thing he did for you in making your sins meaningless and unlocking salvation for free. The next step is you actually have to know that this stuff is real. There is only one way to find out. You have got to pray and you have got to get an answer for yourself of whether your sins are forgiven and whether you are acceptable to God.
I guarantee you a few things will happen. One, you will get an answer. Two, it will probably not be the answer you expect.
And most importantly, it will change your life. It will change your view of God, your view of yourself, your view of others, and you’ll want to do good things and you won’t want to do bad things anymore. This is the Christian path. It is the source of our power and our ability to survive and thrive in any conditions. You need this for yourself.
