Mine or ours?

I had one of those door inside a door inside a door

experiences at church today. During communion worship I had a vision of myself in heaven kneeling before the throne of Jesus worshipping. The song lyric that Mary was playing was about “my lord” and I thought about the words “MY Lord” and I was suddenly aware of all the other people in the room and I felt awkward excluding them. In my vision there was a host of people and we were all praising “OUR Lord” and the doors began to open, Jesus is my Lord but I live in a body of believers, we are a community and Jesus is OUR Lord, then Rory’s saying, ‘no lone ranger christian’ rang in my head and I started feeling very alone and tired and I realized that I have allowed myself to get isolated from the rest of the christians around me and I started feeling very vulnerable and exposed. Not sure how it’ll happen but I am being called back by my shepherd to the safety of the fold.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
