Acts 17:26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.
Watching a video of two little boys, one white and one black, race toward each other and hug with such joyous delight made my day! It reminded me of our connections to each other, espescially as people of God, through the Holy Spirit living in us.
It’s why I enjoy attending multicultural churches, for their choirs of people of all races bring to mind the wonder of the Apostle John in Revelation 7:9, “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.“
According to my research, before July 30, 1956, the motto of America was E Pluribus Unum, which means “out of the many, one, or loosely translated, “one from many.” It was replaced with In God We Trust. Yet, God in His infinite wisdom sent His only Son to earth to die for the many, that we might become one in His sight. Revelation 5:9 proclaims, “And they sang a new song: ‘Worthy are You to take the scroll and open its seals, because You were slain, and by Your blood You purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.‘”
Today, through Christian love, we are one, and nothing can separate us, true disciples and believers, from the love of God or from each other. We can have different views on subjects, but, ultimately, we are a part of each other, and no symbol of hate can change that fact, ever.
