The Say Yes Sir Initiative asks one simple question: If Jesus was alive today, how would He handle racism, discrimination and social injustice? In other words, what would Jesus do if He was harassed by a racist cop?
Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:44-45 – “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good…”
Paul says in Romans 13:1 – “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God…”
God allows racism to give those who are being persecuted the opportunity to demonstrate the greatest power known to man, the power of grace!
Now I know you’re saying, “Power of grace? What’s so powerful about that?”
The truth is grace is one of the hardest commands to follow because …well, let’s face it … grace is risky!
In this world if you give someone an inch they might try and take your life but this is why grace is so powerful. You can think of grace as a luxury that can only be afforded by the invincible.
We believe Jesus is invincible because he walked out of his own tomb, and this explains why He shows so much grace.
But, guess what? He gives the same power to you and I. That’s right; if you are in Christ you are literally invincible! Showing grace is just a good way to let your enemies know it.
When you demonstrate grace you tell your enemies:
1) You have no power over me, and
2) You can’t hurt me.
Instead, you allow the power of God to rule and accept whatever He allows because you have faith in Him and are looking forward to His promises.
Therefore, trade in anger, bitterness and fear for grace and simply say “Yes sir” to racist authority figures knowing that God is ultimately in control.
If you don’t have the power of grace over your life, today is your day! It starts with a believing faith in Jesus Christ who packaged all of our sins into His own flesh and took it with Him into the grave, extinguishing the penalty of sin forever. Then He got up from that grave with a new body, knowing that God was satisfied and our relationship could be reset.
What do you need to do?
• Recognize that a change is needed in your life.
• Turn away from satisfying your immediate needs (the needs of the flesh), making your spirit your top priority (Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:2; Mark 1:15).
• Accept that God, as the Creator of this world, has the power and knowledge to make these changes happen in your life and that He maintains ultimate control over the issues that surround you (Isaiah 40:21-22, 28).
• Surrender your life to Jesus and strive to look, act and think like Him (Romans 8:29; 12:1).
• Follow the path of Jesus Christ who gave up His life so that you can live eternally in Heaven with Him (1 Peter 3:18; Romans 5:8).
Have faith in God and trust Him to work all things together according to HIS plan (Romans 8:28).
