We Love You George
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,”
Acts 17:26 NKJV
Each one’s race is a gift from God. It is the stroke of His brush, saturated in the color palette of the greatest artist of all time. The earth is the grand canvas that Almighty God chose to paint such a magnificent display upon, mastering His artwork amongst every nation of men. From its onset, the race of man was beautiful. It is a distinct and unique splendor, and wonderfully recognizable. It is captivating and should be celebrated.
Enter the sin of man in response to the slithering snake. Enter the division that God never intended when He determined the geographical boundaries. Enter racism, and all of its barbaric characteristics of hell. Division becomes soul bound rather than geographically defined. It becomes death and decay and murder and pain. It begats the demise of all of those we know, gone too soon, its fallen victims, their names written in history.
Black is gorgeous (just look at my wife and my four bi-racial children). White is not without color, but rather a hue chosen alongside God’s vast color scheme. Red is passionately pronounced and Brown beckons its equal of a bronzed gold. People, humans, crafted from God, are these colors. Such art we are not blind too, such art we praise. Such art because it is God’s heart, because it is exceptional and without error.
No longer can we let error give race a bad name. No longer can we raise children to mirror the angst and evil grippings of generations of dead spirited men, foaming at the mouth, a demons cry, a voice that speaks the lie that race is anything other than God’s glory reflected in the face of man. I rebuke in the name of Jesus that foul spirit, and I call on all those who know no greater identity than the blood of the risen King Jesus. Let the redeemed of The Lord proclaim racism is sin. God’s people, hate sin. We adore our God and we vehemently love whom He loves. We love you man and woman, we love you every race, every name, every trace of the affection of the holder and maintainer of The Throne. We love you Father, and because you have shed your love abroad in our hearts, we love your creation. We reflect your heart, and we raise our voices on earth to declare as it is in Heaven, your truth. WE LOVE YOU GEORGE.
