It’s election week, and following on from Sunday’s service we will be reflecting on the votes or choices made in the Bible.

Matthew 4:18-22 NIV
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. [19] “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” [20] At once they left their nets and followed him. [21] Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, [22] and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Come follow me, the call of the politician. Give me your support and loyalty, rally others to the cause. But with Jesus it’s more than that. He asks not just for our vote, but our lives.

How much are you prepared to give to him?
