The Reconciling Power of the Cross – Leonce Crump

“Dr. King famously said that Sunday morning is the most segregated day of the week. That was over four decades ago, and yet reality tells us that Sunday morning is very much still the most segregated day of the week. Not only is this still our primary reality as evangelicals, as Christians, whatever label you want to throw onto yourself today, but I think that it is nearly sin. You see there’s a lot of talk today about being missional, engaging the culture, being on the mission of God. And I wonder, is not the mission of God to see people not only reconciled to Himself, but diverse bodies of people reconciled to one another as well. Many of you would not disagree with that, and yet even as I look over this sea of faces I still don’t see the Kingdom.”

Revelation 5:9-10 says, And they sand a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God person from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priest to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
