How do you exalt Jesus during a presidential election? Some Christians think this involves promoting a particular political agenda, while others want the church to denounce a certain candidate or party. One consequence of these kinds of approaches is that the church loses its distinctive witness to the gospel of Christ. In this message from 1 Peter 2:13–17, David Platt points us to some biblical foundations for exalting Jesus in an election and beyond. Instead of giving our allegiance to worldly leaders, the church should submit to and exalt the One who rules heaven and earth. We are united, even amidst political differences, around the Lord Jesus Christ.

David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and chairman of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, Counter Culture, and Something Needs to Change.
