Wanted: Character Content
“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” So said Martin Luther King Jr in his 1963 speech before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. He’s in good company; God shares that desire and repeatedly expresses it through His Holy Word.
God reminded the prophet Samuel that, “man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”  Jesus experienced this personally as many rejected Him because He didn’t fit their ‘Messiah expectation.’ Even His disciple Phillip was initially skeptical exclaiming, “can anything good come out of Nazareth!?” 
Jesus steadily retrained His followers showing Peter directly, and others by his testimony that, “God has shown me not to call any person common or unclean.” 
Jesus continues retraining us to throw off the man-made shackles of putting differences between people groups. He instructs us in Revelation 14:6 to take the everlasting gospel, “to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.” None are excluded, for all are precious in His sight.
Humanity attempts to correct ethnic prejudice and these many attempts have significantly changed outward practices; yet, only One can change the heart to love someone with a different ethnic or cultural heritage. Only Jesus can solve the prejudice problem. As we behold Him, we are changed into His likeness, we begin to reflect His character, and we learn to see ALL people as He does, children for whom He died and wants to recreate. 
Look around friends! See and hear a nation, indeed a world, discontented with its self-view and view of others! The world urgently needs a proclamation and witness of God’s true character. Your daily surrender to Jesus, your witness of Him, and your support of STR are helping to prepare this world to meet Jesus, the righteous judge; Who judges not by outward appearance, but instead by character content.  1 Sam 16:7 ;  John 1:46;  Acts 10:28 ;  2 Cor 3:18
