The Dream That God's Children Should Dream

“…, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children -- black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics -- will be able to join hands…”  [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.]
 

Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” Speech, is a dream (vision, aspiration or hope and or desire) that is in agreement with the hope and prayer of Jesus Christ.  In the gospel of John, Jesus is recorded as saying, “May they be one…” [17:21 & 22].   The “they” that Jesus was speaking of wasthose who through the teaching of His disciples would come to believe [17:20].   “Those” being “they” who by believing would become children of God or God’s children.  

Dr. King was looking forward to the day when God’s children would be what Jesus hoped we would be, one.   This is more than a call for civil rights and equality.   This is a call for the unification of the body of Christ.

I believe that this speech was directed towards the children of God.   All of America and the world heard this speech and continues to hear it to this day, but it will be up to the children of God to make this a reality.   We, God’s children are the only ones who can make this a reality.   Not by us joining forces or joining hands with those “of the world”, but by us “joining hands” with those who are God’s children.  
 

Jesus prayed for this “unity”: He in us and us in Him, so that the world will recognize that God sent Him and that God loves us as He loves Jesus [23].

Dr. King was envisioning the worlds “recognition” of the “love” of God in hopes of “God’s desire of all men being saved” [1 Timothy 2:4].   He was ministering “reconciliation”.  

This dream: vision and aspiration should be the hope for all of God’s children – black and white, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics.

 

Be Blessed…

Be one with God.
