NL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, May 8, 2019

by Stefanie K. Fauth, Clergy Stuff


God’s love is for everyone. No exceptions.

We can see that in the text over and over again, but we still forget it.

We cling to the need to accept Christ - or the need to behave a certain way. We cling to rules and guidelines and what makes us feel most comfortable.

But Peter’s report to the church speaks to the capacity for God to love people no matter what their background may be.

Does your worship community welcome everyone? How can you be sure you stay welcoming to all?
