“In Essentials Unity, In Non-Essentials Liberty, In All Things Charity” Part 2
We continue the discussion about the Seven Mountains of Culture and how as Christians we are to have a Kingdom impact in each Mountain! We want to empower believers to move within the Mountain you are called to. For example, you have the Green family, who owns Hobby Lobby, they stood for the Kingdom of God and brought God’s Kingdom to the Business Mountain! Now they have funded the opening of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. and now through the museum they are influencing the Religion Mountain. Know this, we are not limited to influencing one Mountain of Culture.
How can we be unified without compromising our beliefs? The Moravian Church of North America said, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.” We need to identify the non-essentials so that we can truly know what the essentials are and unify around that and through it all move in the love of God. God wants His Church to come together in unity and Jesus is Whom we all have in common. Jesus should be our focus as the Church comes together and not focus on the non-essentials. We can come together as the Church in unity without compromising who God is to us. We need to begin to give each other the freedom to follow God while staying loyal to the essentials.
Today, get a vision for discipling a nation, for praying for God’s Kingdom to come to all the Mountains of Culture: Religion, Family, Business, Education, Government, Arts and Entertainment, and Media Mountain. We want to hear from you! Also shared in this segment: E Pluribus Unum, Doctrine, Wealth, Ethiopia, Orphanage, Rick Joyner, Final Quest, Vision, Dream. Greg, Pat, and John shared in this segment.
Bernice King, Daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. says she is Profoundly Responsible for Carrying Father’s Legacy to the next Phase as Should We
Bernice King, Martin Luther King Jr’s daughter shares with us today, as she led a delegation from the King Center in response to the actions that took place in Ferguson, Missouri. She speaks of non-violence and love as the response to those actions. “Non-violence is a way of life in courageous people. Non-violence seeks to win friendship and understanding. Non-violence seeks to defeat injustice and not people. Non-violence chooses love instead of hate.” Bernice calls this movement “Non-violence 365” and she shares about the time that was known as the “Civil Rights Movement.” “The movement that was led by my father was a spiritual movement. It wasn’t a Civil Rights Movement. It impacted Civil Rights. But, it was a spiritual movement and its assignment was to Civil Rights.” As Bernice grew up her mother told her she was a lot like her Father. She carries on her parents work as CEO of The King Center, which her mother, Coretta Scott King founded. “You want to preserve the possibility of reconnecting the brokenness in communities, that’s Christ and He has given to us the ministry of reconciliation and that really is what this Non-Violence 365 is all about.”
When truth is spoken it is so encouraging! Bernice King is sharing so much truth through her ministry. Jesus had a non-violence movement. He entrusted Himself to His Father who judges justly and did not react in violence. We want to hear from you and what you think about non-violence.
