A suggested solution to the tragic events that erupted in Dallas, July 8, 2016

Dallas officers shot July 8I’ve been thinking about it all day… The Gospel, powerfully experienced and practically applied would solve all the problems that surround and have led to the terrible incident we grieve about that transpired in Dallas yesterday evening…

  • The profound transformation of the evil in the human heart
  • Love for others in the place of hatred
  • Justice in the place of injustice
  • Reconciliation in the place of Enmity
  • Forgiveness instead of harbored bitterness
  • Acceptance in the place of intolerance
  • Kindness instead of vengeance
  • Blessing instead of cursing
  • Humility instead of arrogance
  • Peace-making instead of violence
  • Redemptive Love that embraces all humanity, regardless of differences, rather than bigotry

I could go on… this is NOT a complete list!  But as a Christian and devoted follower of Jesus, why don’t we make the Gospel with all its power and redemptive potential, our one grand cause in the world… I think Apostle Paul had it right; he said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, it is the power of salvation to all who believe!” (Romans 1:16)  Don’t know about you, but I’m going to accept the challenge of taking it, sharing it, and living it wherever I go!
