When I feel on the outskirts, You remind me “I belong” as You draw near. (1 John 4:4)
I BELONG to You!
But I don’t just belong like I am just inside the door or a novelty collectible high up on a shelf.
You wanted me so much, You took the weight of all my sin upon Yourself on the cross, and made the way clear for me to return to You as one of the family. One who will always be welcome at Your table.
I belong, and can rest in that truth anytime I feel on the outside of a crowd nor one of the “in” group.
I don’t just belong, for You know me by name, and love me the same as all the other family members You have invited to belong as well.
And Your Word doesn’t stop there with what You say about me today….
