Steady Christian Hope in Fluctuant Political Waves

We should vote and work at all times that the righteousness of heaven would be reflected in the laws of men.

The governance of men could never comprehensively reflect the righteousness of heaven. And there is our citizenship—beyond the waves, beyond the horizon. Ours is an onward and upward call. A relentless pursuit of the personal and corporate perfection that will be ours to claim “when the Son of Man comes in his glory.”
