In the last few weeks there has been much said about race relations in our country. I recently preached a sermon entitled, “The Gospel & Racial Reconciliation.”
Some highlights are:
Biblical Principle #1 on Race – God Made All Ethnic Groups From One Ancestor (Acts 17:26)
Biblical Principle #2 on Race – Every Individual From Every Ethnic Group Are Made in God’s Image (Genesis 1:27)
Biblical Principle #3 on Race – God Plans Redemption For Every Ethnic Group (Genesis 12; Galatians 3:14)
Gospel Implication #1 – The Racial Wall of Hostility is Destroyed through the Gospel (Ephesians 2:11-22)
Gospel Implication #2 – The Saints in Heaven Represent Every Ethnicity (Revelation 5:9-10)
Gospel Implication #3 – The Saints in Heaven From Every Nation Are United in One Voice (Revelation 7:9-10)
Gospel Implication #4 – Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly. (Matthew 23:23; Micah 6:8)
Steps Forward in Racial Reconciliation…
#1- Learn to Listen
#2- Pray (Fast & Pray, Pray for Police, Pray for the Church to Lead, Pray For Multi-Ethnic Churches and Leadership, & Pray for God’s Glory to proclaimed)
#3- View this as a Gospel Issue…A Discipleship Issue.
