The apostle Paul writes to the church in Ephesis to remind them that they are no longer Jew and Gentile; they are brothers and sisters in the Kingdom of God with one Heavenly Father. In the same way, color of skin, gender, ethnicity mean nothing in the Kingdom of God. We are all sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters.
We need to know the heart of God in order to serve him. Psalm 146 shows us who God has a heart for, and how we are to care for them too.
We need to align our hearts with God through worship, so that we can serve our King well as ambassadors of His Kingdom.
We live in a broken world. Racism, famine, shooting, porn. None of this was God's plan for creation. But we can be part of the Kingdom of God, right now. With Jesus, there is no shame or condemnation. We have been forgiven, for the purpose of showing that forgiveness to others. As Citizens of Heaven we are to be ambassadors of reconciliation, or forgiveness.
When Jesus comes, we are called to be ready. The biggest barrier is complacency. We can get so caught up the mundane routine of life, the we can miss the Kingdom of God.
When Jesus comes, be ready. If you wait to get ready when he comes, it's too late. Don't focus on avoiding where you don't want to go; focus on where you want to go.
