Monday, January 15, is Martin Luther King Day. A national holiday that promotes harmony and unity among all Americans. Martin Luther King Jr. was an Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using the tactics of nonviolence based on his Christian beliefs.
In a culture that is increasingly antichristian, we need to come together without regards to race to demonstrate to the world that Jesus Christ is alive, that He changes lives, and that He loves everyone. Black, brown, yellow, or white, we are all precious in His sight. We are all equal in His sight, deserving of the same rights and privileges afforded us as Americans.
Regardless of color, the blood of Jesus binds all believers together. Once the world sees that we can lay aside our differences, appreciate each other, and value each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, they will be drawn to the Jesus they see in us. The only hope for our nation is for believers to join hands and hearts.
Instead of carrying our hurts, let's carry our crosses. Instead of assigning blame, let's align our hearts and spirits with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Instead of demanding our rights, let's declare our undivided allegiance to the Savior of the world. Because the coming of our precious Lord is imminent, we dare not tarry any longer.
Let's start what Dr. King started by joining hands with all believers in the name of Jesus Christ. The work is too great to do alone. We need each other. Every soul matters. The evil one has come to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Let's stand united, together for the promotion of the Gospel. Only then, will people be truly free.
