Ministry Update: Congressman James Lankford
Congressman James Lankford, R-OK, 5th District, believes the world will be a better place when its Public Servants lead with integrity and biblical principles, so he fully supports the Capitol Ministries' mission to take the Gospel to every nation.
"I absolutely believe in the advancement of Capitol Ministries world-wide because I believe in the core task of Capitol Ministries," Congressman Lankford said.
Congressman Lankford is a member of the Capitol Bible Study that is led in the US Capitol in Washington, DC by Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries. To help further the mission, the Congressman welcomed a recent opportunity to meet with a pastor in a foreign country who will soon launch a Capitol Ministries Bible study to Government Officials in his native land.
"I met with him and shared with him the mission of Capitol Ministries in our nation's Capitol, then I answered some of his questions, and I encouraged him in his efforts in his nation's Capitol," Congressman Lankford said.
The responsibility to advance the Gospel to government leaders has its roots in Acts Chapter 9 when Paul was commissioned to reach all people, including the gentile kings for God.
"Paul's task was to reach everyone, but there was a very specific calling to leaders," he said. "There is something powerful when a nation is led in righteousness, biblical ethics and consistent integrity. The entire book of Proverbs was written to the next generation of leaders to make sure they knew how to lead with God's principles.
"When leaders lead with integrity, an entire nation of people benefits," Congressman Lankford said.
Predicted to win a U.S. Senate seat this year, Congressman Lankford will have additional opportunities to encourage other Public Servants and discuss with them biblical principles of leadership.
"It is tremendously significant to share the Gospel not only in our Capitol and in Capitols across the United States, but also in Capitols around the world," he said. "As we encourage leaders to lead with integrity and follow biblical principles, their nation will be blessed."
