I bless you to be part of the ultimate Racial reconciliation, The consummate equality In Christ.
You’re a “chosen race” (1 Peter 2:9) —
Part of a new kind of people,
A new bloodline.
It’s a bloodline
That transcends earthly ethnicities.
Words from John Piper:
“The death and resurrection of the
Son of God for sinners…
[Brings] the bloodlines of race
Into the single bloodline of the cross.”
(John Piper, Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian)
You’re “chosen in Christ” (Ephesians 1)—
“Chosen” into this race,
Graced into it,
Through faith alone,
Without regard to your merits.
Celebrate the beauty of diversity,
But, remember today,
You’re in a whole new race—
The “chosen” in Christ race—
That’s your bloodline,
Child of God,
A chosen race.
