Anyone can see there is a great political divide in this country. In fact, it has gotten worse over the past few years. Some are asking, can anything be done to heal this divide? The answer is yes, but not as most people might think. More politics will not fix the divide, only Jesus can make things better.
Jesus had the political divide of His day among His apostles. Matthew was a tax collector, hence a worker for Rome. Simon was a Zealot, someone who hated Rome. Yet in Christ, they could be as one. If they could do it then, we can today as well.
Paul gave the key in Rom. 12:18, "If it is possible, as much as depends on you , live peaceably with all men" Christians must do all they can to maintain peace. Remember, Jesus blessed peace makers (Mt. 5:8) and they good they could bring to the world. In our divided times, peace makers are needed. Paul told the church in 1 Thes. 5:13, "Be at peace among yourselves." Politics may divide the nation, but politics must not divide Christ's people.
