240 – If Jesus was here today, would he get involved in politics?

Do you think he would be a member of your political party? Would he take sides at all? Or would he take a different approach to solving the problems people are facing today?

How would Jesus bring healing to the political divisions in today’s society? Would he go to Washington, D.C. and make a speech in congress? Would he meet with opposing political opponents and try to get them to agree on things? Or would he hold a political rally and campaign for one candidate over another?

I don’t think so. 

In this week's episode:

  • The difference between your perspective and God's perspective
  • Trying to solve the problem on same level of the problem never works
  • If you want to heal like Jesus, you have to act, pray, and love like Jesus
  • To do that, you have to think like Jesus
  • What does the kingdom of heaven have to do with politics?

Jesus never got involved in the politics of his times. He never made it a priority to resolve the conflicts with the government of Rome, with its intrigues and powerful personalities. He never tried to resolve the disputes between the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Zealots, and the Essenes. 

As we get closer and closer to the election this fall in the United States, and as you see the political scene do whatever the political scene will do, don’t be impressed or get absorbed in what’s going on. Don’t be alarmed or fearful. Don’t believe everything you hear. Don’t judge any situation by the outward appearance of things pro or con.

If you really want to bring healing to the political scene, start with yourself, surrender your personal opinions and perspectives and see everyone and everything from the perspective of what is true in heaven right now. This will bring healing to you, to others, and that can and will, in turn, bring healing on a larger scale, even to the political arena.
