I went to my first ever Caucus last week and was fascinated. One of the speeches that caught my attention was given by a Lutheran Pastor. I don't remember who he was speaking in favor of, but I remember his initial narrative. He commented that some candidates are so popular right now because people want a king. The fear, confusion, disillusionment, bad economy, unsafe world, threats to our national security.....the people want a strong personality who will take charge and turn everything upside down and fix it and rule and lead with strength. The people want a king.
Sounds much like the Old Testament, doesn't it? The people wanted a king. So God gave them a king. But the desire of God is to be our king.
So, nothing political here. Our hope is in Jesus and Jesus only. He is King.
