Reminder: test for 2013
candidates: Godliness

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Jesus called them together and said, `You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant’…” (Matthew 20:24-26, the Holy Bible).

-ooo-

REMINDER: TEST FOR 2013 CANDIDATES-GODLINESS: Let me reprint this column: “President Aquino is right—voters in the May 2013 elections should not elect “pretenders” to public office since only those who will and can really serve should be voted upon. But then, with due respect, he is totally wrong to assume that only those who wear yellow shirts have the capacity to serve well.

“There are many who don the yellow color but are really undeserving of any elective position, even the lowest ones, and there are those who wear other colors but who are really able and capable. What the President should be pounding upon for our people to vote for in May, if he wants his `right path’ campaign to really succeed, are candidates who have the fear and love of God in their hearts, and who are true believers well-versed and obedient to the Word of God, the Bible.

“Undeniably, this country and this nation have already been subjected to all kinds of leaders since time immemorial. It is now time to push for men and women who will lead our people first and foremost to become true listeners and sincere  followers of God, a people who will once and for all base their thoughts, words and actions on what God says according to the Bible, and who will act, speak and think in recognition of God’s primacy in our lives, and in loving embrace of the welfare of others.

-ooo-

VOTE FOR 2013 CANDIDATES WHO FEAR AND LOVE GOD: Then, and only then, will this country and its people be able to claim its rightful destiny as a nation blessed, led, guided, and protected by God. Consequently, the question that President Aquino and all of us should try to answer is: who are the candidates in the 2013 elections who have the fear and love of God in their hearts? The Bible gives clear indications as to who they are.

In Exodus 18:13-21, Moses was given by his father-in-law, Jethro, the guidelines for selecting officials who will rule over others. Jethro said: “… Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him.

“Teach them his decrees and instructions, and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave.  But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens…”

-ooo-

CANDIDATES WHO HAVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD: In Genesis 41:15-40, one of the sons of Jacob or Israel, Joseph, was brought to the Pharaoh of Egypt to explain the king’s two dreams—first about the seven cows and second about the seven heads of grain. On meeting the king, Joseph immediately clarified that the power to explain the dreams belonged only to God, and explained what the dreams meant—seven years of golden harvest to be followed by seven years of severe famine.

Joseph then explained that what was needed to be done to save Egypt and the surrounding countries from deadly hunger was the installation of a discerning and wise man as a leader of that country. The Pharaoh then asked: “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom the Spirit of God dwells?” Seeing that Joseph was guided by God, the Pharaoh installed him as Egypt’s second ruler, next only to him, the king.

Finally, in Mark 10:43-44, Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, defined what a godly official should consist of. He said: “…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,  and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all…” Our question now is: are there candidates in the May 2013 elections who possess these qualities and therefore deserve to be elected?

-ooo-
