One of the challenges of our faith is how to view people who live their lives, and believe, differently than we do. Many people interpret Paul as condemning those that are different, but this interpretation overlooks the very basis of Paul’s mission. Paul’s entire mission to the Gentiles was to include a disenfranchised people into the free gift of God, without having to earn that gift. Paul’s understanding of the Gospel is good news for everyone. We do not have to earn our faith or earn our identity as a beloved son or daughter of God. Do we keep running a race, a race that causes us to believe we are earn that is finished or do we rest in the freedom of God’s grace?
