God Doesn't See Color

God Doesn't See Color

As I was reading my morning devotion I was awakened by the fact that God does not see color. Peter, an apostle of Jesus, was a devoted Jew and was taught not to associate or visit anyone from another race (Acts 10:28). Have times changed? The same racial issues our county faces today were being dealt with 2000 years ago. History, without a doubt, continues to repeat itself. God makes is clear we are love and associate with all people who believe in Jesus – we are One in the body of Christ.

Through a vision God opened the eyes of Peter to see that colors are not to be separated. Peter says, “Now I understand that God doesn’t play favorites. Rather, whoever respects God and does what is right is acceptable to him in any nation” (Acts 10:34). I would venture to say the continued evil that is prevalent in Ferguson, Missouri is being led by those who do not respect God. God does not see color, but evil does – it sees Red.

It is Red that saved us from our evil; the blood of Jesus shed on the cross for each one of us. Through Christ’s blood our heavenly Father sees us as white as snow – colorless without flaw. As we celebrate Thanksgiving today remember God has forgiven each of us and we too are to forgive one another. Our nation needs our prayers and our voice. Share the Good News of Jesus with those whom you know so that all may respect and love God enabling everyone to do what is acceptable and pleasing to God. Have a blessed Thanksgivings praising God with family and friends.

Take time and read Acts 10

Touching Lives for Christ… Because it Matters.
