A Bible Verse For MLK Day

Men die. Dreams don’t.

Joseph’s brothers thought to slay him and rob him of his dreams, but he rose as if from a tomb and become more powerful in “death” than he had been in life.

For each Christian martyr cut down, more rose to replace them, leading Tertullian to write, “The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”

Sometimes embracing the cross is the only way find true life. Martin Luther King was a Christian preacher. All he did flowed from the Christian faith, and the sense of justice and righteousness it awoke in him. May we all follow Christ in the same way, even if it leads unto the cross.
