There is no Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for your are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.
No Lesser Christians
by Molly Tilley
It’s so easy to get caught up in our own “little” world that we forget the larger story of our heritage in Christ. If we belong to Christ then we are related to Abraham and part of the covenant family of God. This is a family where there is no favoritism based on gender, ethnicity or economic status. Christ as our covenant head made that possible for all of us who believe in him. Because of him we are Abraham’s offspring and heirs according to the promise. There are no lesser Christians! Praise God today that you belong to God’s eternal family. Take time to savor that truth.
How to pray today:
- Thank God for the many stages of life represented in our congregation: older, younger, single, married, single again, from children to senior citizens! Pray that all would truly find a home at LBC, and a place to belong, connect, and grow.
- Thank God for the early stages of ethnic and international diversity in our church family. Pray that we would grow as a faithful gospel community where people of all backgrounds can flourish as part of our community.
- Have you noticed the many senior adults in our church? Thank God for the rich inter-generational connecting in our church family. Pray that our older adults will not only feel welcome, but that they would be able to share their wisdom and maturity with us, leaving a spiritual legacy for the future.
