A friend of mine wrote on his Facebook feed on Monday; “I am an unsuccessful member” alluding to him missing out on Grand Final tickets. He is an Adelaide Crows member and huge numbers of Richmond and Adelaide members missed out on tickets to yesterday’s game.
When I think about Jesus’ Church there are no such people! Every true ‘member’ gets an entry to the biggest game of all – surely heaven is the true Grand Final!
But more than just heaven, as members of Jesus’ Chruch we get to belong here on earth to the “chosen people, royal priesthood, holy nation, God’s special possession”. We’ll explore that today and in the next few weeks to come.
