For Pastors

Sermon outlines, legal guidance, and more

Dear Pastor,

Thank you for standing in the gap and serving the Church in the critical role that you do. Your leadership is vital if we are going to see Christians unite and boldly live out their faith in all areas of their lives, including the public square and voting. I truly believe it begins with the local church.

We want to equip you to engage your church in the simple act of voting. Because whether it’s local, state, or national elections, we’re standing for biblical truth in the public square.

We recognize that voting represents more than a political preference, but a declaration for God. And we know that by uniting through what we believe, we’re also standing against the spiritual opposition that stands against us. Voting is one simple way for Christians to act on their faith, and it is powerful.

We hope you will choose to remind your church of their opportunity to vote and encourage them to do so. Please select from the resources below that fit the needs of your church. Select one of the videos and an announcement slide to use in an upcoming church service and leverage the sample scripts to create your customized reminders for your church.

And don’t forget, as a pastor, your voice, and encouragement is the strongest motivation they will receive.

Standing united on God’s Word,
Jason Yates
CEO

Sermon Outlines

We encourage you to utilize our FREE Sermon outlines on the importance of Christians to boldly stand together for Judeo-Christian values at the voting booth so that America stands strong with God.

HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS VOTE

Contributed by Dr. Tony Evans

Many, if not most, Christians begin with the wrong question of who they should vote for, rather than the more important question of how they should vote. Asking the correct question is fundamental to knowing how to arrive at the correct answer. The goal of this message on God and Government is to share the basic principles underlying God’s establishment of government and how to cast an educated vote that is closely aligned with God’s word.

STATE OF THE UNION: When culture and the Gospel intersect

Contributed by Vance Pitman

This 6-week series seeks to establish a Biblical worldview on some major issues facing our nation today. This series does not have a political mission, but rather, this series will help establish a Biblical filter of truth through which Christians can rightly interpret key terms like racial reconciliation, immigration, refugees, elections, voting, and government to make Christ-honoring decisions.

Week 1: Who am I?

Above all else, who I am is who I am in Christ. Above all else, I am NOT an American…a Republican or Democrat or Independent…black or white or Asian or Hispanic…law enforcement or citizen…

Week 2: How do I see the peoples of the earth?

How do I see the peoples of the earth? … By God’s sovereign design, from the womb, every human life is precious and filled with purpose…this is not just true of American life…its true of Mexican life, Columbian life, Syrian life, Iranian life, African life, Chinese life, Korean life…

Week 3: How should I approach this election?

How should I approach this election? … Understanding governing authorities are God’s design I am to willingly place myself under their authority and obey the laws of my country, state, county and city…as long as governing authorities do not contradict the Bible, to disobey government authority is to disobey God… Not only is there a right to vote in our Constitution, it’s the single right that appears most often in our Constitution’s text—five different times.

Week 4: How important is racial reconciliation?

Our mission as the church’s includes the mission of racial reconciliation… The call of God on the church is not simply to reflect the temperature of the culture when it comes to racial reconciliation but the call of God on the church is to set the temperature of the environment as it pertains to racial reconciliation and then actively work to maintain that temperature!

Week 5: How do I relate to governing authorities in my life?

How do I relate to governing authorities in my life?... The security of my future rests in the sovereignty of God not the governance of man… God established the principle of governing authority…it was God’s idea…so my attitude towards government, in principle, is really a reflection of my attitude towards God and His infinite wisdom.

Week 6: How do we pursue biblical community in the context of diversity?

How do we pursue biblical community in the context of diversity? The church as a multi-cultural expression of the Gospel is not a new thing, it’s a New Testament thing.

VOTING GUIDE: THINK. PRAY. ACT.

Contributed by Lane Fusilier

Jesus said, “My Kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). So, should Christians participate in the democratic process of our nation? If so, what biblical guidelines can Christians follow and how do we respond to the partisan panic in an election season? This sermon reveals three primary responsibilities for the Christian citizen: TO THINK, TO PRAY, and TO ACT. Each sermon in this series explores how to honor God by faithfully fulfilling each of these responsibilities.

Week 1: THINK

Understand that biblical discussions of government see God as Ruler of all.
Lord of Creation—based on Genesis 1, 2.
Lord of humanity—based on divine creation of humanity.
Lord of all whom He grants authority under His rule. Both in their establishment—Romans 13:1. And in overseeing their function. God takes a personal interest in “politicians” because He both cares about individuals and He cares about the future He intends for us all.

View Sermon

Week 2: PRAY

Pray for kings and all those in authority. May our political authorities lead well, such that we might live tranquil lives, quiet lives—not under threat… May those authorities and their families find life and peace as we pray… May we, the prayers, understand the true intentions of God for us as we lives our lives in “alien territory.”

Week 3: ACT

AWe are ABLE to ACT, even though not yet perfect! A growing disciple of Jesus will expand the influence of Jesus into the public square—public debate of issues with compelling arguments that Jesus Himself used!
