Vote for Change?

I confess that when I first heard what would be the Tories campaign slogan in the forthcoming election, my immediate reaction was, "Surely they can do better than that!" The very use of the "change" word, after all the hype the other side of the pond last year, makes the slogan sound tired - it needs changing! :-)

On second thoughts, however, regardless of your views on the political scene, how much of your life would you like to change? Wouldn't it be wonderful if such change could be achieved just by "voting" for it, putting your X in a box marked "a better life"? Of course, life is not that simple. Old habits die hard. Sin needs to be repented of, and that is often painful. Nevertheless, the invitation of the gospel is refreshingly clear: if, repenting of your sins, you put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone to save you from the guilt and the consequences of those same sins, you will be voting for a wonderful change for the better!
