The Importance of One Vote

In 1776, English was chosen as the language of America over German by one vote. In 1880, after a tie in the Electoral College, the House of Representatives elected Thomas Jefferson by one vote. In 1868, President Andrew Johnson, was saved from impeachment by one vote. In 1878, Rutherford B. Hayes won the presidency over Samuel Tilden by one vote. In 1923, Hitler became leader of the Nazi party by one vote. In 1948, Lyndon B. Johnson became a Senator by one vote. California, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Washington became states by one vote. One vote can change history and the world.

One vote can change the eternity of your soul! God votes for you. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). Jesus came into this world “to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). God does not want us to be lost in hell. He wants us to live with Him in heaven.

One vote can change the eternity of your soul! The devil votes for you to be lost. He began with Adam and Eve (Gen. 3; 1 Tim. 2:13, 14). He wants all to be with him eternally (Rom. 6:23). Hell is a place where the devil and his angels will be punished (2 Pet. 2:4).

One vote can change the eternity of your soul! It will be your vote. God votes yes. Satan votes no. You cast the deciding vote. Joshua stated the truth when he said, “…choose you this day whom ye will serve…” (Joshua 24:15). We cannot choose both (Matt. 6:24). You can win. You can be victorious (1 John 5:4). Who will win in the battle for you soul? Your vote, one vote, will make the difference. Make the right vote!
