Reflection from Nicholas N Jazminee Cantu
When I see the death of George Floyd it didn’t surprise me. Was it wrong? yes. When I see the looting and rioting bringing about more death, destruction, loss of more jobs, people’s hard work, it doesn’t surprise me. Is it wrong? yes. But we are not looking at the root of the issue which is sin and the absence of God within a society. We live in a broken world Run by broken people. Until we get to the root of the issue which is Dealing with our own sin through repentance and trusting in Christ things like this are and will continue to happen As they have been. On the surface it’s racist but at the core is the lack of love for our neighbor regardless of race, And at the core of not being able to Love Our Neighbor is the issue of not being able to Love God and to be able to truly love our Neighbors regardless of race is to first Love God.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Matthew 22:37-40 KJV
In Revelation Jesus says to a specific church to come back to there first Love but he says that to everyone even the unbeliever because on the Cross he Showed his Love to Everyone
