Dr. King was right: "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." But love is a "fruit" or work of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). If America would turn to Dr. King's God, we would see Dr. King's dream fulfilled — beginning in this life and consummated in the next.
Several years ago, the earliest recorded sermon of Dr. King was discovered. At the time he delivered it, Feb. 28, 1954, he was still a seminary student. The site was the Second Baptist Church of Detroit. He titled it "Rediscovering Lost Values."
King's dream was to live in harmony with the moral law as God established it. So this Martin Luther King Day, reflect on that dream — for it is worthy of our aspirations, our hard work, and the same commitment Dr. King showed.
