Over the past few years, racial tension has exploded in our country. As followers of Jesus, this should make us pause and consider what is going on. Are we contributing to this in some way? Is there anything that could be done? What would God want us to do here and now? But when we go to God’s word, we see that the need for racial reconciliation is far older than our country and is far deeper than a PR problem or lack of education or compassion. We see that racism is real and is a gospel issue.
