(Sts. Simon and Jude, Apostles)
St. Paul said, “Brothers and sisters: You are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.” Eph 2:19-22
Of course, Paul is speaking of the Gentile, Ephesians being accepted into this “household of God,” the Jews.
You see, Jesus opened the gates to His kingdom to EVERYONE who believes in Him. That’s you and me, beloved! And that “household,” and that “kingdom” are not some mysterious, neverland fantasies. Through His love for us and through our love for one another, we can BE in that kingdom right now! All we need to do is open our hearts. “Breathe in, ‘I will it Lord'” And He will see to it that you will be living a whole new life.
A life of LOVE!
