As our world depresses and despises us, being included becomes all the more precious.
And we are. A place at His table. All the family gathered. Forever protected by our Father-King.
"And you were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession - to the praise of his glory" (Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV).
STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
We may not be wanted here. But that's okay. HE includes us.
