2 Samuel 7:1-14a; Psalm 89:20-37; (Jeremiah 23:1-6; Psalm 23;) Ephesians 2:11-22; Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
The world is full of walls. Everywhere we go, there are fences, gates, partitions and other ingeniously constructed barriers—all aimed at keeping something or someone in and keeping something or someone else out. We need walls.
Remembering our past helps us to appreciate and not take for granted "the mighty acts of God through Christ Jesus." We did not belong. Our relationship with God is not a right, but a gift.
