I tell people all the time, “The Bible holds every solution for every problem we will face in our lives, our society, and beyond.” And that statement is proven true in America today concerning the issue of racism. Yes, God has something to say about racism….and here it is.
“…..But God has just shown me (Peter) that no race is better than any other. It’s God’s own truth, nothing could be plainer: God plays no favorites! It makes no difference who you are or where you’re from—if you want God and are ready to do as He says, the door is open.” (Acts 10:28, 34-35 MSG)
The people of America, the good, the bad, the nice, the mean, the “red and yellow black and white” everyone…needs a healthy dose of “wanting God.” Obviously, we cannot solve our problems without some good ol’ Divine Intervention. And we need to be ready to do what God says. His door is already open, regardless of your race. He looks at the heart. Then it happens….the restoration that ONLY HE can provide. The more we lean on and trust God, and the more we spend time with Him in His Word; the more we will become like Him. THIS will produce a truly UNITED States of America, where people understand, “that no race is better than any other.”
It only takes one person to get the ball rolling…I pray YOU are that one!
