Keller: Gifts of voting, salvation are free to enjoy by everyone

Published 12:06 am Saturday, August 1, 2015

The right to vote and salvation have one thing in common.

They both are free gifts. Free to everyone who chooses to accept the gift that was paid for at a high price.

The right to vote was preserved by many men and women who gave their lives in the different wars protecting our freedom.

Every election, over 50 percent of registered voters in these United States refuse to exercise their right to vote and have a voice in the Democratic process.

They choose not to participate in elections that will determine who will govern their lives.

Can I understand their refusal to accept the free gift paid for by the sacrifice of many men and women?

No, but as for me and my family, we will not only vote, but will take an active part in every election.

We choose to not only voice our choice in political campaigns, but especially in the voting booth.

It’s a free gift that I accept with gratitude from the people who preserved our freedoms.

I feel that the right to vote is a Christian responsibility.

Besides the right to vote that most Christians choose to accept, the most important free gift that they choose is salvation.

Unlike the right to vote given to us by many men and women who sacrificed their lives, salvation was made available to all by the sacrifice of only one man, Jesus. I’ve chosen to accept both free gifts.

Salvation, like the right to vote, has another thing in common. It’s available to all, but many refuse to accept it.

This being an election year, we have a certain date that we can exercise our right to vote. However, the day of salvation can be any day, at any time.
