A Houston County pastor has gone viral after preaching an inspired message about perspective, race, and the glorious diversity of the Kingdom of God. Pastor Jordan Kersey was addressing a large crowd at the “Church in the Park” event when he issued a call for Christians to embrace varying perspectives and to bear good fruit in our lives by loving those who are different to ourselves.
“When we get to Heaven, it’s not going to be a white section, a black section, an Indian section, it’s going to be all of God’s people,” Kersey declared, reports 13 – WMAZ. Then, he held up a Coca-Cola bottle and asked two church members to describe what they see. “Diet Coke,” one man answered. “I see sodium, protein and total fat and total carbohydrates,” the other added.
Neither was wrong, they just held differing perspectives. The simple illustration clearly struck a chord not only with the congregation but with 10 million other people who have viewed Pastor Kersey’s message online.
“It doesn’t matter what color you are. You don’t know what that person has been through and I think that’s the point that he is trying to make. I’m guilty of it and I think everyone is guilty of it,” said one church member, Randy Horton.
“Everybody may see something different, but in the end it’s all the same. Both sides were different, but we all mean the same thing at the end of the day,” said another member of the congregation, Hannah Bauldree.
Pastor Kersey never expected his message to be viewed across the world, but he is thrilled by the worldwide impact his words seem to have had, as 13 – WMAZ reported:
“The underlying tone of that message was love not hate and I think when we come together as one it spreads like wildfire,” said Kersey. “I wish you could see the private messages from South Africa, Australia, China, all parts of this world… basically telling America you need to get your act together and come together as one.”
