40th Anniversay of his Death
A Prophet without Honor
On April 4th we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death. We are all purposed to live out what he fought for so diligently. We have a national holiday named for him, but are we really embodying what he represented?
Was he a prophet? Well, we know he was a dreamer. He was a profound visionary, a pastor, and a preacher. Dare we say that he also walked in the prophetic, and if we are not truly honoring his dream and working toward the manifestation of it --he is a prophet without honor. The mature church should represent what Dr. King envisioned, what he prayed for, and what he lived. As we grow, we should be expanding his dream with our own inspired by God.
Can we compare Dr. King to Moses? In some respects, we can. Even his last speech parallels. He talks about going to the mountaintop and seeing the promise land. Was he prophesying when he said, I may not get there with you, but we, as a people will get there? We are in the 40 years now. Think about it. A new interest has been raised in an entire generation that has never been proactive before. A woman and a black man are the frontrunners in the presidential race. People are dying off and the Joshuas and Calebs are coming forward. In order for this change to take place, the body of Chirst has to be in the lead. We are the head and not the tail, but we have to enlarge our territory. We cannot stay within the confines of the church. The "Church" has to innfluence the world.
Dr. King once stated that his greatest influence was Jesus Christ. Follow suit, let God lead you into action that will make our nation greater and give recognition to His prophet.
