This is a big day in our country’s history.  Our first black president, a former resident of Hawaii, Barack Obama is taking on the mantle of leadership over a country that is suffering in a recession and struggling to understand our role as a leader in this world.  President Barak Obama was inaugurated this morning and so begins his work of four years or more.  We as citizens, called by vocation from God, are called to pray for him and those that advise him.  We are called to support the government and to use every opportunity to be a part of that government.  If our opinion differs, our government provides a way to let that be known.  Prayer is the most important .


We confess to be true that “Jesus ascended into the heavens and sits at the right hand of God.”  This was Jesus inauguration.  A coronation that confirmed that Jesus had completed the work that God the Father gave him to do.  Jesus came to the throne still bearing the scars of His crucifixion.  This is the death on the cross where he paid the price for our sin that marked Him with those scars.  Jesus didn’t come to solve the economy, political or cultural problems, he came to bring God and man back together again.  Jesus began at the most important and vital relationship, each person with their Creator.  Jesus connected us to God by taking away the sin the divided us from Him.  Paying for the sin that required death as the payment.  Since Jesus was without sin He made that payment for all who believe in Him, connecting us with His death and saving us from the cost of our own.    


I don’t know what the next four years hold for us but I do know that Jesus reign is eternal and goes far beyond even our lifetimes.  On his coronation or inauguration Jesus began a reign that continues forever.  It was His inauguration that marked a change in the history of the world.  Instead of praying for Him we pray to Him and so let us pray.


[Please pray for our new President, Barack Obama now if you are able]


In His Service,


Pastor Shawn
