Indifference to racial reconciliation is indifference to the gospel of Jesus Christ (All About Jesus #12)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

The gospel we preach, believe, and stake our lives on must imply racial reconciliation—if it didn't, it would be no gospel at all. God's grand plan to fix the world wouldn't really fix the world if it didn't address justice and race. Thus, our gospel is not God's gospel if our gospel is indifferent to these things.

To see all this, we turned to the prophet Zechariah, who lived 500 years before Jesus. He clearly saw that the Messiah's coming would fill the world with shalom and justice for all kinds of peoples.

So how can we avoid indifference? We've cried over the past week. But what will we actually do?
