God is Love

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8 (NIV)

For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:12-13 (NIV)

Think about this statement.  Racism isn’t just the presence of hatred – it’s the absence of love.  So, if you are lacking in the area of love, you need more of God.  Why?  Because the Bible tells us that God is love.  As you spend more time with God (reading God’s Word, prayer, etc.) and doing what He says, you start to become more like Him.  As you start to become more like Him, you realize that there is no difference in races or cultures to God.  With God we are all the same and He loves us the same because the Lord is Lord over ALL.  So, give yourself a test in the area of love.  How do you treat people of other cultures?  Do you love everyone equally, the same as God?  When we get more of God (love) then we will become more like Him.
