MLK: His Life's Work and the Sovereignty of God

"Non-violence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time; the need for man to overcome oppression and violence, without resorting to violence and oppression." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, we commemorate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In recent years, there has risen much debate and controversy about the life of Dr. King--everything from his dissertations and speeches to his personal life (marital unfaithfulness, misappropriation of funds, political views, etc.). Whether any of these things are true or not, I cannot say. The evidence that has been presented can go in either direction. In other words, only time will tell. Whatever the case may be, it is important to remember that this man was raised up by God in a time when people needed him. As we celebrate this day in honor of King, let us not forget to thank God, first and foremost, for Dr. King and men like him. God uses both good and evil men to accomplish His purpose. May his will be done on earth as it is in heaven...

Martin Luther King, Jr. - A Brief History

Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind. With him are strength and sound wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are his. He makes nations great, and he destroys them; he enlarges nations, and leads them away. - Job 12:9-10, 16, 23 ESV

The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will. - Proverbs 21:1 ESV

“We are immortal until our work on earth is done.” - George Whitefield

Happy MLK Day...

Soli Deo Gloria,
