You Belong — and so does everyone else.
As part of the following reflection, listen to my song “Mercy Reigns” on YouTube by clicking HERE.
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God.
The same person who believed that all people are members of the household of God had at one time been persecuting and terrorizing Christians in the name of God.
After his conversion, Paul became one of the most zealous proclaimers of the gospel.
And what he preached was that we are truly in this together.
Paul put it this way: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free person, there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).
Paul knew that there were no divisions in God’s eyes.
And yet humans continue to separate and divide, and even worse – demonize those who look or think differently.
Those who do this are living in a delusion of separation.
Where are the peacemakers?
Where are the people calling out the injustices being done to the least of these?
Where are the ones trying to heal divisions?
They are indeed out there.
There are people working to erase the lines of division and to uplift those who are being persecuted.
We need more of them.
Will you listen to the call?
