In the world today, we have a lot of darkness. Lately, you hear "Black lives matter" or "Blue lives matter." The truth is "ALL lives matter." Jesus didn't come to save just black lives or just blues lives, but to save ALL lives. We ALL have fallen short of the the glory of God. Jesus came so that ALL of us may have eternal life, if we believe in Him. Jesus said "Come ALL who are weak and burden, and I will give you rest." Jesus was an invitation for us ALL to be able to live for eternity with Him, not just certain people. Jesus also said "Love one another as I have loved you." As well as "Love your neighbor as yourself." Even with the ten commandments we were told not to kill. So how come people find it hard to love one another, but not to kill one another? Like I mentioned before, the world is full of darkness. Satan is using the darkness to fill us with hate, anger, bitterness, and so much more so we turn from God. We need to stand up, and show this world there is light by showing love, God's love. God created us to love everyone, and that includes our enemies. God's love is unconditional. God loves us ALL and that is why He sent Jesus to save us. So lets start showing the world the light. All we have to do is show that ALL lives matter by loving one another with God's love.
