We all stand on equal footing before the Lord. Oh, perhaps not socially, economically, or in opportunity. But we are all alike in that we are sinners in need of a savior. I don’t propose to offer pat answers here to the inequities that exist in the world, but rather point to the Answer.
And that answer is Jesus. What would the world be like if we really believed Galatians 3:28?
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
We are all one.
We would do well to remember this today–on MLK day–and indeed everyday.
