Never Too Broken Too Belong

Welcome Homeyou belong here

 

“You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together.” Ephesians 2:19-22 MSG

When we think of home we think of family. Memories of celebrations, sorrow, good times, and bad. The everyday events we shared with those we love.

For the traveler far from home, for those who have never had a home, for all of us no matter the circumstances or events that has taken us from there, there is a longing to return home.

A home is more than a house or geographic location. Home is a place where we belong.

All of us at one time were the prodigal in the parable. Some of us still are. And we think we’ve traveled so far, done so much, that we could never be welcome there. We could never belong. I have good news.

welcome home

In the Scripture above we are invited no matter who we are, where we’ve been, what we have become to come home. We can bring our pain, our brokenness, our guilt, our shame and find forgiveness, mercy, and grace. Today if you are on that journey that has taken you far away, or if you have never been there, He is waiting and you are welcome. We are never to broken to belong in our Fathers house.
