Rescued and Restored by God
“We have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. 2 Corinthians 5:16”
Acts 10:28 says, “God has shown me that he doesn’t think anyone is unclean or unfit.”
But the guy in the cubicle next to you makes racist jokes. Doesn’t he notice that your skin is black?
He has a rebel flag as a screen saver. Your great-grandfather was a slave. You’d love nothing more than to distance yourself from this guy.
Consider being the superintendent of an orphanage. You come across a birth certificate with a troubling word: illegitimate. And you learn it is a permanent label. It’s what Edna Gladney discovered. Can you imagine living with such a label? Mrs. Gladney couldn’t. It took her three years, but in 1936 she successfully lobbied the Texas legislature to remove the term from birth certificates.
Let’s view people differently. Let’s view them as we do ourselves.
Blemished, perhaps. Unfinished, for certain!
Yet once rescued and restored—we may shed light!
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
