“But - no offense intended - what about all the inequality we see all around us? Do you think God gives you special treatment just because you are white?” I had initiated a Gospel conversation with Gerardo at a park, and this was one of many questions he had for me. I responded by reminding him about the Lord’s prayer: “Jesus prayed for God’s Kingdom to come and His will to be done here on earth as it is in Heaven. In Revelation, it describes God’s Kingdom as people from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne. If we are to pray that this will happen on earth as it is in heaven, then we need to work hard for racial reconciliation” I told Gerardo. And I know no better way to reconcile people to one another, than to meet them at the foot of the cross, the most level ground in all the world.
