Racial Healing

Description

All of our differences disappear when we are in Christ, for we are united through Him.

“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew or Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:26–28).

Christianity is color-blind. The foot of the Cross is level and acceptable for all who embrace faith in Jesus Christ. Man erects barriers, but belief in Christ tears them down. Man makes himself superior and treats others as inferior. However, our superior Savior Jesus makes humble followers of the Lord significant.

Your devotion to Christ is meant to dissolve distrust toward those different from you. In fact, it is out of the beauty of diversity that your beliefs are made real. Faith untested by inclusiveness is indeed inferior. Belief in God equalizes egos and checks pride. Our Christian brand promises love for one another because He first loved us.

No race can escape the love of God and His children. Racial healing is a result of radical inclusiveness, so invite others inside. Oneness is the outcome of devotion to Christ. Those who are free set others free, and all become bondservants of Christ. Those in bondage are set free to live life for the Lord and for others.

Men and women become one in marriage and one in their love for the Lord. Races have no reason to boast over their lineage other than it is a gift from God. He determined when and where you were born. Your life was planned ahead by Providence. Therefore, thank God for giving you the family and the life He has given you.

Take responsibility for your actions; live life with gratitude and grace. Forgive freely, as Christ has forgiven you, and remove any race resentment with grace insistence. Heaven heals hearts on earth when they are unified by faith in Christ Jesus.

His passionate prayer is, “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me” (John 17:20–21 NASB).
