only an “us.”

Tuesday June 23rd, 2 Corinthians 6:  1 We work together with God, and we beg you to make good use of God's kindness to you. 2 In the Scriptures God says,   "When the time came, I listened to you, and when you needed help, I came to save you." That time has come. This is the day for you to be saved. After speculating on the wonders of God, we can act on the love of God in Christ.  God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life, for God did not come into the world to condemn the world, but to save it.  Christ came to save not just you and I, but even those we don’t like, and who in all likelihood don’t like us.  The right and left wings, the gay and straight radicals, the black, white, yellow, red radicals, the upper 1% and the lower 99%, enemies and friends, all of whom are to be saved by the love of Christ.  There is no us and them in any way shape or form, there is only the diverse and blessed children of God called to recognize one another as brothers and sisters in this great big family of God.  There is only an “us.”  I used to fight with my sister, and from time to time, still do, but never, ever did she ever cease being my sister.  We are all part of this big wonderful, rainbow colored family of God.  Now act like it!!  And love one another as Christ has loved us!!!!
