Them, Too?

September 19, 2017

The Bible literally ends this way:

The grace
of the Lord Jesus Christ
be with all the holy ones. Amen.
Revelation 22:21  

Who’s in?

Who’s out?

Whether we approve or not, Scripture is clear: all. 

(Please don’t panic, we’ll get to those next three words in this verse, I promise. For now, let’s hold up at that three letter word, all.)

This little word all is majorly inclusive. Maybe for some reading this right now it’s monstrously inclusive.

Bishop Woodie W. White loves to say that every time we pray the words “Our Father, who art in heaven” we get a whole lotta family we might not have counted on.

How big is the circle God draws? Bigger than I can imagine.

And it includes them, too? The last verse of the Bible says it includes all of them.

Let’s hope they’re not asking the same thing when they look at us: “Them, too?”
