Everyone is welcome in God’s world. We don’t naturally understand it or how it works but it is true. It is a great mystery. No matter if you have gone to church your whole life or never set foot in the door. We all stand on the same ground.

We all have the same offer of good news to enter God’s world. We all get the same help from a God for whom nothing is impossible.

All of the promises that Jesus made are ours. No favoritism to the religious. Those sitting at the bar are just as welcome. There is nothing we have “to do”.

Now that is some good news from a God that is in a good mood.

As you read over what I have written to you, you’ll be able to see for yourselves into the mystery of the Messiah. None of our ancestors understood this. Only in our time has it been made clear by God’s Spirit through his holy apostles and prophets of this new order. The mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives (what I’ve been calling outsiders and insiders) stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in the  Messiah Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board. Ephesians 3:4-6
