Black Lives Matter to God

As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I believe that all lives matter. However, in America, black people have been consistently shown that our lives don’t matter. We have endured more than 400 years of racism, oppression, disenfranchisement, and discrimination. Thus, we affirm our lives not in an attempt to negate or devalue anyone else’s.

Your Weapon is a Melody

Satan is waging a fierce battle for our hope and our hearts in this season. With everything that is going on in the world, it’s so easy to pick up and carry around anger and rage like a newly acquired purse or wallet. It’s so easy to look out into the world or even at the state of our own lives and feel hopelessness. You don’t know if your life is going to change, when it’s going to change, or how it’s going to change. But you do know that it needs to change.

For God so Loved the World

One of the things I love about God is that He so loved the world, not just some of the world or only the “good” parts of the world. No, He so loved the entire world that He sent His Son to die, not just for some people but for all people. And whosoever, not just white people or black people or rich people or poor people or perfect people or almost perfect people, but ANYONE who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life

Pray for Us

Roughly eight in ten African Americans self-identify as Christians (Pew Research Center). Seventy-nine percent of African Americans believe in the one true, living God who sent Jesus Christ to die for all people, not just some people (John 3:16). Those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior have been forgiven of their sins and reconciled to God, the Creator of the heavens, earth, and all of mankind. We have been grafted into God’s family. We are His children, and He is our Father.
