Groeschel, founding senior pastor of Edmond-based Life.Church, sent a video to his congregation in an email entitled “After the Election.”
“No matter who holds office — our God holds the world,” Groeschel said.
At Council Road Baptist Church, the Rev. Rick Thompson, senior pastor, also referred to the election as he encouraged his congregation to put the current political situation in its proper perspective. His remarks were included in a video posted on the church’s Facebook page.
“As I said a couple of weeks ago, as Christ followers and those who love the Scriptures, we do not see Jesus through the eyes of politics. We do not see the Bible through the eyes of politics. Instead, we see politics through the eyes of Jesus. We see politics, our political situation, through the eyes of Scripture so we always want to maintain that perspective, especially in a very difficult political season that we’re in right now. So we need to remember our witness,” Thompson said.
“One thing is for sure, on Tuesday, Jesus is King and on Wednesday, the day after Election Day, Jesus is King.”
