you are welcome, loved, accepted, desired, wanted and needed in God's Church. Without you we can never see God do something great in our midst, we never see miracles.
the thought of all of those people in one place seems like chaos, insanity and dangerous. In fact, many people would see that as an impossible situation and even a tragedy of epic proportion.
But, the reality is, this is the church. Every church is filled with these people! Every church is dangerous. Every church is an impossible situation…..in the hands and the eyes of men! Your church is, and so is mine!
The truth is, the real grace of Jesus scares us.
The reason we struggle much with grace is this….the reach and power of grace is unexplainable, uncontainable and unrestrainable.
After all, you and I are member of that very group!
