Worship Melts Racial Barriers And Unites Blacks And Whites
I remember when I was a student at Oral Roberts University and I was in a worship service with both blacks and whites. I remember that I felt closer to the blacks in that service than I did outside of the worship service. I realized at that time that being in church together could unite blacks and whites experientially and come in line with the Scriptures that tell us that Christ has broken down the dividing wall between the races and united us into one body.
There is a church in North Carolina that is made up of two churches that decided to integrate. One church consists of predominantly black members and the other church consists of mostly white members. The pastors got together and prayed about it and the Lord led them to unite their congregations. They used worship as the catalyst or platform to allow the Holy Spirit to unite them. They knew that integration can never be forced.
We don't see black & white. Under blood of Jesus everything is red.
These two churches in North Carolina are called The Refuge and House of Refuge, and the pastors, who both are champions of divine change, recently created a strategy to help convert Charlotte's reputation from the image of racial unrest to an image of brotherly love.

Revival is going to come to America sooner when blacks and whites allow themselves to be united by Jesus Christ and come together in united worship to express that unity in a display of brotherly love. Pray for this kind of racial unity to take place in cities across America. We are not different races because there is one human race, but we are different people groups like Blacks or Hispanics. We need to be united so the world will believe in the Gospel.
