You Belong

Ephesians 3:4-6
When you read this you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to human beings in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit, that the Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body, and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.

God was always revealing Himself to humanity…but Jesus was the ultimate revelation. His death and resurrection sent forth the Holy Spirit Who continues to reveal God’s desires for each of us. St. Paul is telling us that each of us is a copartner in the promise in Christ Jesus. The promise is that love wins. Death, suffering and persecution do not have the final say. Resurrection and new life are assured. If you are struggling with anything now…cling to that promise. Jesus described Himself as the “Good Shepherd” who would not let even one sheep get lost. That’s Good News for you, me and everyone else!
