God’s writers have a unique ability to help us find our place in God’s story. If we are ever to extend love, justice, and mercy to others then we must truly know at a heart level how each of those have been and are eternally extended to us. We have all felt like an outsider at one time or another. “Jesus, though he made himself available to everyone, didn’t pursue everyone. But the passion of his life formed the pattern of his ministry. From his first breath to his last he constantly, relentlessly pursued the outsider.” Our worship forms us to be like Jesus. We, the relentlessly pursued and loved, learn to love outsiders … like us.
