All are welcome

Our GOD is one who draws all to HIMSELF. HE died that all may be adopted into HIS family.

Thus it is sad when we hear figures about how segregated our churches are. I heard in one sermon that there are areas in this country where there are schools with more diversity in their students than the churches in the very same areas.

Brothers and Sisters this must not be.

I assure you that when we all get to heaven the criteria will not be on the basis of ethnicity. We are welcomed on the basis of Jesus' blood and that alone. There are no color lines in Paradise.

Let me leave with a pair of verses, one from the Old Testament and one from the New.

...for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations (Isaiah 56:7)

And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals because you were slain, and with your blood purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth. (Rev 5:9)

  1. Beautiful Words and your thoughts are one to make the mind wonder. So sad how it is that there is more diversity in schools than in Churches.
