God loves everyone from everywhere. Jesus came to seek and save the lost so that none should perish. So what is up with all the hate in our world about race? Was it always this way? I had to look back to check. I found that nowhere in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence do they bring up race. Really.
According to Heritage.org:
“The argument that the Constitution is racist suffers from one fatal flaw: the concept of race does not exist in the Constitution. Nowhere in the Constitution—or in the Declaration of Independence, for that matter—are human beings classified according to race, skin color, or ethnicity (nor, one should add, sex, religion, or any other of the left’s favored groupings). Our founding principles are colorblind (although our history, regrettably, has not been).” – This piece originally appeared in The Daily Signal.
I was shocked. Our world is so full of this race hating that race, then comes the violence and injuries or deaths following. We separate everyone in this world. I believe it’s wrong. I don’t care what race you are. God doesn’t care what color we are. All are free to choose to buy into the separation of race, or not. In the Kingdom of God there is NO separation by race. God doesn’t care what color you are – He made you that way! I’m not going to be the one to criticize what God has made! It’s beautiful!
God’s Word for You:
- For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. – Galatians 3:26-29 NKJV
- But now rid yourselves [completely] of all these things: anger, rage, malice, slander, and obscene (abusive, filthy, vulgar) language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new [spiritual] self who is being continually renewed in true knowledge in the image of Him who created the new self— a renewal in which there is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [nor between nations whether] barbarian or Scythian, [nor in status whether] slave or free, but Christ is all, and in all [so believers are equal in Christ, without distinction]. – Colossians 3:8-11 AMP
- After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
Amen.” – Revelation 7:9-12 NKJV
Prayers for us:
Forgive us for ever believing that race is an issue. All the races You have made are beautiful. Thank you for renewing our minds in Christ. Thank you that we don’t have to make race an issue – I’m grateful you brought this to my attention. I look forward to seeing the inner person, not the outward appearance of a person, just as You do and taught us to do, in Jesus Name, Amen.
