Before you read this post you need to understand where I’m coming from. This post is directed towards the response of white Christians towards the black community in America. Of course, there’s application outside white Christians living in America, but that’s the primary direction I’m writing in.

Last week I wrote The Church CANNOT Be Silent which talked about how to view what’s going on in our country from God’s point of view. It was a call to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those that are hurting and oppressed.

And I think that’s an important place to start. Before anything else, we should look at things from God’s perspective and remind ourselves of what He’s called us to. But it’s equally important that we don’t stay there. We need to take a step. We need to take action.

That’s what this post is, it’s a call to action. It’s what we as Christians, as the Church, should be doing. Words by themselves are useless. They mean nothing. Words followed by action bring change.


Prayer does things that we cannot see or fully understand this side of heaven. Prayer should be the first thing we turn to when we find ourselves or someone else is in need.
