“I do know that the Christian faith is one that has to be tried and tested consistently. The Bible talks about making your ‘calling and election sure.’ And so I think you just have to ask those questions: Do I really believe this? Am I really serious about this? To prod and probe to see where you really stand. Hopefully you always end up with that firm foundation.” – Lecrae
Race, color, ethnicity, adversity, tolerance, prejudice, bias, and pride ~ these are just some of the natural realities that continue to ignite our racial divide. But in the end, none of it will matter. On the last day, it will all fall away. Who will you grab hold of on that last day of days?
RIP to Medgar Evers
RIP to Doctor King
I ain’t tryna hate on my own kind
But Al and Jesse don’t speak for me
I’m probably gon’ catch
Some flack man,
But Imma swallow this pill
Like pac man
Some of these folks wont tell the truth, Too busy tryna get them racks man.
These are the fearless words of young Hip-Hop phenom Lecrae, a theologically astute messenger of ‘Hope and Encouragement.’
Check out these lyrics. He sounds legit to me!
Give my whole life for the King, don’t Trip just let Him Invade.
I Sho Baraka Obama this peace is more than just worth it, so call Tedashii tell him Identity Crisis averted.
There’s only one way we can overcome our natural differences in appearance, adherence, and most importantly allegiance. That is through Christ and He Alone.
It’s time to cool the hate, remove the race bait, and respond to our Biblical mandate. May we call upon God with a desire to serve Him. In return, He will certainly enable us to love our neighbor as ourselves. Only then will we look past our differences and become united as Brothers in Christ.
They say beauty is only skin deep, but what really matters is the spiritual state of the soul. Only then will the senseless acts of violence in our diverse nation cease to occur. The best cure for the mistreatment of our fellow man is when we come to the knowledge that we are spiritual beings all made in God’s image with souls for all eternity.
Now’s the time – Who you gonna serve ?
Gotta flea from evil – Have no part of it !
Choose Life ~ Choose Christ
