Sunday Reflection: Trust Not In Princes

We speak of John McCain's resurrected campaign and of Barack Obama's campaign of "hope" and we wonder if Hillary Clinton can come back from the dead politically.

But today we should remember not to put our trust in princes nor our hope in the sons of men, whether left or right, man or woman, black or white. There is one man who rose from the dead to bring hope to the world. If you pin your hopes on the political leaders of this world, you will be disappointed (and if the best of them are what they claim to be, they will humbly join me in that warning).

But Jesus--the Son of God, who was promised to Israel, born of a virgin, suffered hell on the cross for our sins, rose from the grave for our justification, ascended into heaven to reign with the Father, and is coming in glory to gather his people and to judge the earth--that Jesus will never disappoint you.

"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
