2009: A Heavenly Culture

twins2races2009 should be a year when the church seizes the moment on race relations. The two girls in the picture to the right are twins. They have an Black Dad and White Mom. It’s an amazing story if you want to read it, go here. The parents had twins recently and AGAIN, they produced twins: one black and one white. Look at the picture. That family does not view race like most Americans, including Christians. 

Rev. 5:9 says in the end time,

And they sang a new song, saying, Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.

The church has an opportunity to seize the moment and produce authentic racial unity. While I’m excited about the unity found in the election of our first Black President, I’m still looking for the people who should have racial unity to show up. The church must show up this year. The church has no reason to passionately pursue racial unity in the church as a witness to the community. 

1. Will the church do anything different this year OR, will we remain as divided as ever?

2. Will our country really see change, the mystical change we have heard about in our recent election cycle?

We will see! Let’s do our part. I’m going to do my part. We can experience a little heavenly culture on earth. How bad do we want it?
