Those were the words from Joshua DuBois, author of “The President’s Devotional” speaking to Bill O’Reilly the other night. I am not a fan of O’Reilly but TV was terrible so I listened to this interview.
DuBois is a former WH staffer and close friend of the President earning the name “Pastor-in-Chief.” Graduating cum laude with a B.S. in Political Science from Boston University in 2003 he then pursued an M.S. Degree in Public and International Affairs from Princeton.
Every morning, even now DuBois sends the President a devotional which he greatly appreciates.
O’Reilly pumped the message to DuBois that the President rarely goes to church, never uses the name “Jesus” in public and never discusses his faith.
Many claim to be Christians and that is between them and God, just as DuBois spoke of the President. When he remarked the President doesn’t make the habit of speaking of his relationship with God, O’Reilly went off on a small rant.
While on staff at the WH, DuBois spoke out against the President’s fight against religious liberty especially when it came to the abortion pill mandate. He made no reference to anything else that he disagreed with but laid down 3 goals to aid in the President’s walk of faith.
While it is very clear God is our judge, he expects those who claim Jesus as their Savior to represent him. He holds us accountable for our actions and words and especially those he has placed in leadership roles.
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Tim. 2:15)
A personal relationship with Jesus occurs once we let him in to every area of our life; especially our need for forgiveness.
The truth is God only knows the heart and soul of any individual.
However, outward behavior, the words we speak and our personal motives automatically reflect the condition of our hearts.
Luke 12:48 “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
