We Belong to God
Where do you belong? Come what may, who are the people and where are the places that you know will be there for you? We live in a time of unparalleled connectivity; smart phones, wifi, and social media have made it easier than ever to, as the AT&T ads of the ‘70’s and ‘80’s put it, “reach out and touch someone.” So, our sense of belonging, a feeling that there is a place for us, should be stronger than ever.
And yet, so many people in this connected world feel more isolated than ever. Writing a letter from prison to the church in Philippi the Apostle Paul was cut off from the places and people that were important to him. And yet, throughout this letter, the book we now call Philippians, Paul reminds us, especially those of us who wonder where we belong, of one undeniable fact: We belong to God.
