What should our attitude be towards ethnicity in light of Matthew 24:14?

[#13 Q6] Brother Ron, we have heard in your testimony that you came into the church in San Francisco and didn’t care what the ethnicity of the saints there were, as long as it was the church. I believe the point you are trying to make is that we should seek what the Lord wants and not our preference. Could you clarify for us what our attitude should be in light of Matthew 24:14? In order to bring the Lord back, doesn’t he need the ethnos of that nation and city to have the testimony He desires?

In Question and Response (Q&R) sessions, a group of invited panelists respond to questions submitted by students and young adults during the week. The panelists are generally older and more experienced brothers in the Lord who have the burden to respond to our questions by sharing both the truth from the Bible and their experiences in life.

It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.

“That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

-1 John 1:3
