No One is an Outsider!
“But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:13
God mapped out His saving plan for humanity in phases, and at the fullness of time, He unveiled it without leaving us out of the equation. Initially, the children of Israel and Abraham’s physical linage seemed to have all the attention and love of God the father. While the world languished in ignorance and total darkness, everyone wandered in these chaotic and uncertain orders of things.
However, the bridge to the liberation and integration of humanity into God’s one big family was already built and waiting full term for manifestation. It was never the plan of God that anyone should be aliens, especially those he created, live outside the covenant of promise, have no hope, and above all living without the knowledge of God, their creator.
Isaiah 56:3 says, “Let no foreigner who has joined himself to the LORD say, “The LORD will utterly exclude me from His people.” And let the eunuch not say, “I am but a dry tree.”
Nevertheless, through the Death of Jesus, His only-begotten Son, we who were once dead, repulsive in stench, going full throttle in trespasses and sin, have gained access into the kingdom of our king. We have been quickened by mercy through grace and faith. So it was, and it is always the will of God that we should be free from sin and death, but we must take our place by faith.
God seeks our full attention; He beckons us to take our place at the table in the palace of his glory and enjoy the full benefit that comes with being inside. No one is locked out; there is no denial of the fact that He is all-inclusive, not prejudicial, and judgmental. His love for everyone is not biased but wholly accurate and pure in all forms. You don’t have to feel inferior or condemned; there is a place for you in Christ. Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
1. Lord, give me a full grasp and understanding of your intention to save sinners and contribute my quota.
2. Oh Lord, please help me understand what I am doing wrong and how it can be done right in Jesus’ name.
