    Jesus’ message was one focused on hope. He repeatedly talked about how we are made for something beyond this world. That his kingdom was different from that of Rome. And his followers took him seriously. Many of them, martyrs from the 1st century through the 21st, cast aside their fear even in the most horrifying of situations and have died recognizing the truth that no matter how bad life gets here on earth, they will be with their Lord in the next. This realization helped them keep all of the events of this world in their proper perspective, just as we should today.

    Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will win today’s election. More people will be upset about it than are happy about it. Let’s get back to loving them all, looking towards heaven with a grin on our faces, and recognizing that no matter who is our president, Christ is still our King.
