Who are you voting for? The Batists, the Artikulates, or the Obidients? In Nigeria’s political landscape today, we have three main contenders and they have creatively given themselves brand names, as derived from the names of the presidential aspirants.
The populace is divided into these three camps, and sentimentally too.
So, Who are you voting for?
Whoever you vote for or whoever has the most votes will become the president of this nation. His ideas would be foisted over 200 Million people.
His policies will be given the time of day! He will decide for us. He will rule over us.
The populace will leave through his ideas and policies. We will be constrained by his intellect and thought patterns.
He will decide for us. He will sign papers that might be beneficial or detrimental to us and our generations!
Before you vote, think!
But that is not where I am going this morning, the Nigerian political landscape is just helping me to arrive at a spiritual landscape.
Who you vote for takes control of your life via police and decisions at the National level.
So this is where I am going. Who are you voting for?
Rom 6:12 (MSG) That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don’t give it the time of day.
Don’t give sin a vote! If you do, sin will take control of your life! Sin will dictate the direction of your life and will keep you bound, often leading you to where don’t want to go! You remember “They are carrying me to where I want to go o!”
That is exactly what sin does. It holds you by the jugular and leads you into dark areas of life.
But I want to be free! I want to leave my life! Let me freely vote for who I want.
Well, here is the response:
Romans 6:16 (MSG) Hardly. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom. Offer yourselves to sin, for instance, and it’s your last free act. But offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits. All your lives you’ve let sin tell you what to do.
Voting for sin becomes your last free act, just as voting for aspirants becomes your last free act for the next four or eight years! They take charge after that. That is what sin does!
God wants you back! Will you consecrate yourself afresh this morning? Will you stay away from that sexual sin? Will you focus on your spouse and stop dining with the devil on the adulterous dining table?
Who are you voting for?
I choose to vote for God like Joseph did when Mrs. Potiphar wanted to fry his destiny! He ended up in the palace.
I choose not to vote for sin as Samson did and his freedom was taken when his eyes were gouged out! He ended up taking his life!
Who are you voting for?
