We are told that many people will come from East to West to take their place in the Kingdom of Heaven.
For far too long, however, we have defined these people only in terms of what separates them from God’s love…
If we truly come seeking God, we must not come merely seeking a God separate from our brother or sister whom God has placed on our path, but a God who comes to us personally, and individually, through each one of us. We must embrace equally and without condemnation with a universal love.
Christ proclaimed, "When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself."
Often the person we point the finger of judgment and condemnation at does not need to be as liberated as we personally need to be liberated from our own judgment, condemnation, and prejudices.
When we begin to understand this in our deepest being, we will begin to heal the churches’ and world’s sicknesses and divisions.
