The significance of belonging


“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone” Ephesians 2:19-20. We belong!

Have you joined organizations in your life? Maybe in your childhood you were a member of the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts. You remember the time with such pleasure. You learned so many things and most of all was the enjoyment of the relationship with other Scouts. Belonging to the Scouts was a blessing.

Did you have a time in your life when you joined with a band or a choir? The memories of these are great and they include studying, working, but most of all being part of a neat group! Belonging is always important in our lives. Did you, while in college, maybe join a fraternity or a sorority? It was such a neat time and it was such a pleasure to belong!

And many reading this have joined with another in marriage. In this relationship, we belong! We are one with the other and marriage is a time of neat experiences such as vacations together, maybe building a new home together or moving to a new state. The great joy of this is having children and expanding the family. There is such neatness in belonging to the family!

But while all these things are wonderful and it is such a joy to belong; the most important thing that we will ever do is join with the Lord and belong to Him. We will not be outsiders or second-class citizens or a “Johnny come lately,” rather we will be children of God. It is because of His great love that we belong! Jesus is the cornerstone of the House of God and we are part of that holy house of God. We belong!

If you know Jesus as your Savior, spend some time right now rejoicing with Him and thanking Him for His saving grace. Let’s always turn to Him and live for Him and rejoice in being part of the Family of God. We belong! And if you have never turned to Jesus, take time right now and ask Him to forgive you and take you into His House. And then rejoice in knowing that you belong to the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Let’s always seek His face and rejoice in belonging to Him. We belong!
