A Nationalist election view: God’s workmanship

In Ephesians 2:10, the apostle Paul tells us: ‘For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ That is both encouraging and challenging!

Encouraging – because each of us has a specific task to do that is unique for us. Challenging – because we need to find what that task is and then follow it through. For me that has previously meant being an accountant with Operation Mobilisation in London; and later, with Interserve/United Mission to Nepal (UMN).

For the last 26 years, it has meant being in politics: first, as a local councillor, then as an MP and now as a Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP). Many jobs are uncertain these days and politics is definitely one of them. I have seen myself pacing the floor when an election count seemed close… and then suddenly you are either in a job or out of one. No notice period, no mercy; the ballot box is harsh.
