1 John 4:1-6madonna and child and lamb

Belonging – A Reprise

We have studied the opening verses of this chapter before to take a look at how and why and when we belong. We have reflected on true and false teachers and have spent time thinking of how and why and when we acknowledge Christ. Today we consider what it means to fully and wholly belong to Christ.

We have no way of predicting how our belonging to a particular group will change our lives or affect our emotions, but we know for certain that when we belong to Christ our lives are changed irreparably and eternally and always for the better.

We have no way of knowing how our acknowledgement of our membership in a specific organization will change our environment or heal our wounds. But we know for certain that when we acknowledge our union in Christ’s Mystical Body that we are never alone and we are never lost.

We have no way of understanding the effects of Christ’s friendship on our lives . . . but we understand deeply that without Christ we belong to nothing of any account.

Spend some time today with these verses and compare several versions by clicking on the scripture link above and pondering . . . how and why and when we admit to belonging to Christ.
