“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28 ESV)
“Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.” (Romans 14:13 ESV)
This is part of the song Revolutionary by Josh Wilson:
“Let’s take some time, open our eyes, look and listen
And we’re gonna find we’re more alike than we are different
Why does kindness seem revolutionary
When did we let hate get so ordinary
Let’s turn it around, flip the script
Judge slow, love quick
God help us get revolutionary.”
According to google, revolutionary means “Involving a complete or dramatic change.” As the song says, we are more alike than we are different. I don’t care what color your skin is, what your political party or type of church you attend. We are all the same.
There’s another song called We All Bleed the Same. And we do. A person of color and a white person bleed the same color as does Chinese, Japanese and all others.
It’s a shame that the world can’t seem to get along anymore. People go around shooting out of a car window at random houses or people for the fun of it. Babies are being killed everyday, kids go missing and maybe are never found. Who knows where they are and what is happening to them. Families are torn apart because of drugs. You hear of it everyday, someone overdosed, leaving young children to deal with the trauma of watching it happen.
It’s time we all opened our eyes and take a good hard look at what is going on around us. We need to come back to God.
I know I harp on this a lot. But it’s near and dear to my heart. I don’t want anyone left behind.
It’s time my friends. Open your eyes. Maybe we can’t stop it all, but we can try in our own part of the world. Turn back to God, don’t let hate rule your life.
