On April 4, 1968 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King exited this world to glory, and that same day I was birthed into it. For my family, it was a bittersweet day. It was a day of treachery and joy.
Dr. King lost his life so others could live freely with dignity and integrity. He believed in the power of LOVE FORCE which was AGAPE (Love) in action. Dr. King believed that LOVE FORCE was God’s sovereign and divine providence, the power of the Gospel offering salvation and deliverance. Dr. King served and sacrificed so others could have spiritual, psychological, social, and economic security. Unfortunately, the work is not finished and the dream has not been realized. This why I fight.
I serve humanity because of God’s grace and mercy. I serve humanity because we were all created in the image of God. I serve Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and American Indians. I serve the economically disadvantaged, middle class, and wealthy. God does not discriminate and is not a racist, materialistic, or narcissistic. I serve God because He has given me freedom, and I choose to fight injustice. I fight for the people.
There is no purpose without service. In order to have freedom – you must fight for it. Liberty without moral integrity is bondage. Service is the epitome of sacrifice. It is exemplified the character of Jesus Christ. Will you sacrifice your life for another?
We can no longer just dream. A dream is nothing more than thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. We must wake up and make the dream a reality.
I will serve the rich and poor. I will serve until I’m no more. I will serve when you cry. I will serve as long as I’m alive. Why do I serve? Because of Him.
Remember, God is able! Think about it! Peace!
