The holiday observing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is an important holiday for the church. We must use this holiday to declare that we are committed not to just the ideals of Dr. King, but to the biblical requirement that the church is to be one people made up of men and women from all races and economic backgrounds. This is God’s plan for what the church is to be. The church created by Jesus is to be made up of men and women of faith from every race, no matter their financial status or place in society. We are all children of God and are to be one in Christ Jesus. That’s the true church.
