Racial Division

Racial division is nothing new. The early church grappled with it. Paul wrote the book of Romans to the Gentiles in Rome. He reminded them that Jesus was a Jew. He then reminded the Jews in the Roman church that Jesus accepted Gentiles. When we accept one another, regardless of race, we bring glory to God.

Racial division is rooted in pride. There are no “superior” races just as there are no “inferior” races. I am grateful that while God chose the Nation Israel to be His representative, He also accepted Gentiles! Let us accept one another!

“Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God. For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers, and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written, ” THEREFORE I WILL GIVE PRAISE TO YOU AMONG THE GENTILES, AND I WILL SING TO YOUR NAME.”” ‭Romans‬ ‭15:7-9‬ ‭
