The thing I find most compelling about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the thing that is most overlooked about his mission and his legacy is that he was the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In an age where pastors are pushed to the outskirts of relevancy in popular culture, we celebrate a day named after a pastor. We celebrate a pastor who used the words of the Bible, a book scorned by popular culture as promoting bigotry and ignorance, who committed his life to following Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and taught others the same, something seen as offensive to popular culture today–whose faith propelled him to do exactly what the Bible told him to do: end injustice.
A sermon from Rev. King on Luke 11:5-13
I am so grateful for Rev. King’s faith in Jesus Christ, which propelled him to lead a nation to see racial inequality and to take steps toward remedying it.
On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I encourage you to consider joining us for the February 21-22, 2014 Justice Conference, as we continue to follow in Rev. King’s legacy of leading our culture in biblical and social justice. Hear from Rev. King’s daughter, Dr. Bernice A. King, one of the Justice Conference’s keynote speakers and head to TheJusticeConference.com to register for a simulcast near you (or head to LA for the live conference). If you live near Lansing, please plan on joining us at the Ramada Conference Center as Crossroads Church hosts the Justice Conference simulcast, along with local speakers on the front lines of biblical and social justice, exhibitors featuring local justice organizations and ministries you can come alongside of. Visit JusticeConferenceLansing.com for more info.
Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
