One of the glorious things about being a Christian is looking at Jesus and realizing how much God loves us. I wish every one of us could be assured of just how much God loves us. Even tough we are sinner, Jesus love us. He didn’t take as a shameful thing our situation as sinner. He calls us as his brother, his sisters and mother. We remember how he calls Saul to become Paul. Saul was a persecutor of first Christian people in Israel. But, Jesus approaches him in a special way that he might change his opinion and his persecution to the Christians and Christ. And Saul, an enemy of Christ, becomes a brother, a close brother of Christ. Saul become Paul and gives his love and life for Christ.
We too, surely has black and white stories of our life. But God never abandon us. God love us and called us his brothers and sisters and mothers. It means also, we are ready to speak and practice of a life in God, a life for others and a life that always go for the better of the other. We believe that something as simple as a smile, a touch or a kind word can help and serve to build a person up: Can help to assure them that they are a child of God; the bothers and sisters and mothers of Jesus Christ.
