“God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19. This is my daily verse. God is so wise and so loving that we can not comprehend His wisdom nor His love. On earth we are more than a billion human beings and when He was creating, God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Genesis 1:26. What then would would you perceive as the image of God. Every human being is a likeness and an image of our maker but still we choose to be racist and discriminate between jews and non-jews, christians and non-christians, black and whites. Our image is that of God. preach peace and love your neighbor. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31, these are the two greatest commandments that Jesus gave us. He did not ask you to go out and fight with your neighbor because he is black or because his family is muslim. If you cannot love what you can see, then how can you love God yet you have never seen him? Christianity or faith is when you believe in what you cannot see. ” Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” 1 John 4:20.Learn to forgive and move on. Can you imagine Jesus had no sin, but He loved us so dearly He chose to die for us? How then can you thank such a man? when you do wrong every day and you confess your sins to him and ask him to forgive you, does He hesitate? Does HE not lift your burdens and make you walk in righteousnes? Learn to forgive and move on. “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:18.
Today I am preaching a message of peace to someone out there. It is the Lent season. Walk with Christ during this period of trial and above all, pray alot. Make prayer your number one item on you things to do before you go to work, before you go to sleep and after work. Teach your kids that nothing is more important than loving you neighbor. Tell them that the only difference between being black and white is just the skin, beyond that we are equal and worthy of Christs’ love. Be the first to show them that muslims are not terrosts just because they wear hijabs,niqap, burka, chador or khimar. They are our friends, our colleagues at work and our neighbors. God is not a God of one religion or one race,HE is a GOD of all people not considering their color, race or religion. HE loves us all and so should you be stranded when a person you think is different says helo to you, just recall this verse: GALATIANS 5:14 “For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
You wish to see change in the world, It begins with you being the change.
