If you are looking for an old familiar friend in a new and exciting way, look no further! 3:16 is the book for you. Max Lucado has once again brought fresh insight into a verse (John 3:16) that all Christians can recite on demand. We’ve heard it since childhood and many of us proudly received our “gold star” as our memory verse badge of honor. Yet this is a verse we do actually remember, and recite over and over again. This is our old standby, the foundation of churches and Christians; we understand it, agree on it, proclaim it, we get it … or do we?
This past Tuesday, despite the freezing cold temperature, over 7,000 gathered in front of the South Carolina State House for a prayer rally led by Franklin Graham. We prayed for our families, communities and nation. We were challenged to take a stand for what we believe as followers of Christ and to gain back ground that has been lost in our country.
No candidate or political party was endorsed. Instead we were encouraged to research the candidates, to pray for God’s guidance, and then to vote for candidates that stand for biblical values or at least line up the closest with biblical values.
Research varies somewhat but it is pretty well received that at least half of Christians in America are not registered to vote. In the last election, half of the Christians who were eligible to vote did not vote.
