What Does Jesus Believe About Race

January 4th’s message is about “Race.” From the beginning of the Church and since the founding of our nation, Christians have dealt with the issue of race, and many times not in a Biblical way. Jesus gives us His thoughts and what He believes about race in several passages: John 1:12-13, regarding who can become a child of God, ANYONE who believes. There are no qualifications regarding race. Luke 10:25-37, Jesus speaks of the race of Samaritans in relationship to Jews. EVERYONE is our neighbor Jesus says, no matter their race. And then in John 4:1-42 Jesus speaks to and sharing His life with the woman of another race and culture who if you were a Jew, you would despise her. In Acts 8:26-40 Philip, a deacon of the first church in Jerusalem, was sent by the Holy Spirit of Jesus to speak to an Ethiopian about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After this African was saved he went back to his country and shared with his nation the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Jesus loves all mankind, John 3:16, and gave His life for everyone who would believe on Him by faith, no matter what their race.

Sermon Series: What Does Jesus Believe?

In January and February, using Scripture, we will investigate what Jesus believes about subjects that are relevant to our society today. Jesus speaks on these thoughts in one form or another, either directly Himself or through his biblical writers, for all Scripture is inspired of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and each writer was moved as God led him to write what he wrote. (2 Peter 1:20-21)
