“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” -2 Timothy 1:7.
God instilled us with power, love, and self-control for a reason.
Black Power is political and spiritual.
Let’s reframe Black Power as a divine call to action. What are you being called to do? This is where your power lies.
Black love is the root of our liberation efforts.
Self-control doesn’t mean policing our emotions. It means deciding how we respond to anti-Blackness and hatred.
The power of self-control could be seen throughout the Civil Rights protests. What’s often forgotten is that protesters went through extensive training, proving that self-control is a form of discipline.
No matter what comes our way, we can always call on our power. Let our divine love, power, and self-control inform how we respond to it.
