AN INCLUSIVE JESUS – AN INCLUSIVE CHURCH
‘So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God …. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 26, 28
The Gospel writers tell us many stories of people – individuals and whole groups – who are treated as ‘outside’ God’s blessing and salvation, who are excluded from the community and from worship.
They also tell how Jesus consciously includes these same people – they come close to God, they are blessed, often healed, and they become part of the Jesus community.
Jesus is radically Inclusive, and we, his body, the Church, need to be radically Inclusive too.
