We're now in the midst of the election season, and here in Northern Ireland we have two elections on the one day - an interesting day on so many levels. The date will be 05-05-05, which is also Ascension Day (but more about that when it comes round!). We will be electing representatives at both local government, and Westminster levels, so it could be a confusing time, with two electoral systems in operation.

Please don't expect much political debate on this blog, even being a politics graduate, and taking a keen interest in such matters, I'm not going to reveal my allegiances - if you know me, you'll have a fair idea how I'm going to vote.

Voting is all about choices, and choosing representatives. 1 Peter 1:20 tells us that Jesus was chosen before the creation of the world to die for our sins. The Bible also teaches us that God has chosen the elect to be saved, whose names are written in the Book of Life. To Him be praise and glory forever, who has called us to salvation, and by His grace, has counted us as righteous through the atonement provided by Jesus' death on the cross.

The challenge is: have you found salvation in Christ? Have you chosen Jesus as your Saviour?
