“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8
God’s kingdom calls on us to grow our awareness and compassion for issues of social justice and anti-racism.
As Christians we must strongly affirm that every human is made in the image of God and worthy of equal respect (Genesis 9:6). We are called to seek justice for the poor and marginalized (Isaiah 1:17). We are called to repent from favoritism and prejudice, no matter how subtle, both on a personal and national level (James 2:1-9; Daniel 9:4-8). We must not put ourselves above others (Philippians 2:3,4). We should flee self-righteousness and instead humbly ask God for mercy and continued growth (Luke 18:10-14).
Our hope is to respond to the issue of racial justice thoughtfully, biblically and in a way that causes this conversation to become part of our journey of discipleship. We want to respond as followers of Jesus and as his church, as agents of reconciliation, love, justice, mercy, hope and practical good deeds.
Discovering God’s Heart for Racial Justice
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
– Micah 6:8
For Jesus to help you search out the sin in your own heart, and by His power bring transformation in your life.
For the Church to live out the gospel courageously and when need be sacrificially.
For an end to systemic oppression in our nation.
