Recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, have gone onto suggest that racism probably has no end in sight. Since the last year, we’ve heard of so many instances of racism and hate reported in various places.
We as Christians have got a lot to do to combat this issue. One of the things that I believe would help is, connecting with community folks who aren’t a part of our race and culture. Not just the regular contact we have with them at the church on Sundays and during midweek services, but connecting on a more cordial level. When the world sees the love that we have for one another, they would be forced to want to know why we have so much love in us.
We are only going to achieve this if we have faith and action. But behind the scene of working faith is a secret and that secret is love. Faith cannot function alone. Faith only works through love which is God Almighty Himself. Whatsoever gift you possess in the body of Christ, love is overall. Paul said, faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
It was this love that brought Him to this world, and it was this same love for us that nailed Him to the Cross. Love forgives all in the midst of persecution. Jesus prayed for His persecutors, and Stephen begged God to forgive his executors. This kind of love is what our family need today to enjoy heaven on earth in their homes. That sort of love is what we need in our society today to live in harmony and bid insurgency and insecurity farewell. Jesus paid the price of love and expects us to continue in this good work mainly. Love all and hate no one. Black or White or Brown, we all bleed the same blood.
“LOVE MUST BE SINCERE. HATE WHAT IS EVIL; CLING TO WHAT IS GOOD.” Romans 12:9
