All of us want to belong somewhere. Our family, friends and local community are places where we want to feel welcome and loved. The most important thing is to know that we always belong to God. The fact that He made is His children in Christ is the greatest comfort and certainty in our lives. In life and death we are part of His brand-new nation-" the Kingdom of God." We are His people, His co-heirs, and His treasured possessions.
" But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)
