Dying 2 Live...!

Dying 2 Live...!

Saturday, January 22, 2011


A nation that is divided is a nation that is on the verge of collapse. Likewise, a city that is divided is a place soon to be run with violence and mayhem. Chaos is inevitable and misery will overtake the society. America may think that this doesn't apply to them but maybe for a Communist nation or one financially deprived. Well, America is becoming more and more divided---Democrat vs. Republican, wealthy elite vs. the disenfranchised poor, Blacks vs. Whites, women vs. men, etc. What's more, much of this divided confusion has leaked over into many of our local churches---the Body of Christ and Kingdom of God. Jesus exclaimed in Mark 3:24 that, "A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand." It's not so much that it "will not" but that it "cannot." It's an impossible feat!

As Christians, we have to learn how to become less selfish and a lot more united. It is shameful that Sunday morning is still the most segregated day of the week, where many churches are separated by culture and race. I just don't get it! The same individual(s) you work with, who claims a relationship with Jesus, you can't seem to worship with. Or, on weekends, you can't even associate with them because they make less money a year than you and your counterparts. Maybe, they are janitors and you're a doctor. The interesting thing about heaven, that we know of, is that it will be filled with people from various backgrounds, races, cultures, income levels, and all other walks of life---who are in love with Jesus.

Instead of seeing individuals in black or white, by an idolized status, or by some additional preference we need to see others by love. Better yet, we need to see others by RED---The Blood of Jesus---the epitome of LOVE. With this outlook, people can notice the truth of what it means to be ONE!
