When considering our work as an organization and how we so desire to close equity gaps in America…
How we’re actively chipping away at helping students of color become better readers in order to perform better in all subjects…
How we want to help parents bring discussions about equality and diverse perspectives into their homes in safe, age-appropriate ways…
How we want to empower people of color to generate wealth in a way that provides more opportunities for their learning, their safety, and life opportunities…
Our biggest wins are not in those areas.
Our biggest win is when God uses us to draw hearts to Him.
It’s my belief that it’s only when our hearts are submitted to Jesus that true equity is discovered and sustained.
And when we understand equity from his view, we’re now empowered to bring his kingdom and will on earth, as it is in Heaven.
I was invited to teach at my beloved church, The Square in Smyrna, GA, as a contributing voice to a summer-long exploration and message series for the book of Colossians.
Colossians is a beautiful epistle exposing Paul’s desire for believers to lay down the ways of culture in order to exchange them for the teachings of Jesus, and as a result of that exchange, allow their behaviors and life to reflect their belief in his words.
In this episode, I’m sharing my thoughts on the passage of Colossians 2:8 – 15, in an effort to discover what Jesus defines as true liberation, and how his believers can enjoy the freedom, comfort, and ease they desperately longed for in the midst of real life suffering and oppression from their Roman government.
It’s my prayer that it speaks to your heart in a way that draws closer to him.
