Election seasons can be volatile. There are many opinions voiced and many issues at stake. Regardless of our political affiliation or the outcome we desire, if we are Christians, only one person ought to have our undivided loyalty: Jesus. The church—not a political party—is God's means of accomplishing his ministry of reconciliation in the world. Let us be careful to represent it with grace and hope.

As Christians, we are not called to retreat from the world, nor are we called to conform to everything in it. We don't fit neatly into worldly categories, but are instead called to a mission higher than earthly agendas. Sometimes, it can be difficult to navigate this tension of how to live in and for this world, but not of it. Fortunately, we have a wonderful instruction from Peter and a perfect example in the person of Jesus.
