“The problem is sin…not skin.
The answer is grace…not race.
We are all equal and we all live under the same sky…despite what the hateful media wants to you to believe to stay in fear and tuned in.”
The above post appeared in my Facebook feed this morning, from a friend I’ve known since high school.
Every day, i amazed by Gods grace. As I allow Gods spirit to fill me up, I find His grace spills over toward others. May this always be so… may His love flow so freely through me that I can love whose who don’t see the world through the same lens as me.
I’ve honestly never felt racist in my life… never even considered the color of someone’s skin to be a significant part of what defines them as a person… red and yellow, black and white, they are ALL precious in His sight.
I am truly saddened by the people who have made war out of skin color – I dare say even people who may never have thought about skin color difference before.
The truth is, we’ve ALL sinned and fall short of His glory. And need His grace in our lives. It has nothing to do with what race we are and everything to do with the sin that separates us from God. Without His grace, we will fall prey to what the receiver wants us to believe… his divisive ways are tearing us up and he loves it.
I am praying for revival in our country, for the grace of God and the Peace of Christ will change hardened hearts. I His holy name I pray, amen
