Who Are My People?

Jesus asked, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” (Matthew 12:48, NLT)
(Here is a question for you to answer yourself)

I was invited to a gathering of believers, hosted by a church. In the course of getting to know other people as we do – the question “which church do you attend” came up. I was happy to let them know that I am a fellow believer and briefly told them about my church. And here is where things became awkward. At least for me it was awkward; I didn’t anticipate the next question. It’s not like I’ve been living under a rock since I gave my life to Christ. I mingled mostly in Christian circles and I love all people of faith, Seekers, New Age and Non-believers. What is there not to love about people! I’ve walked in many shoes and it takes one to know one.

What is the question I hear you ask!  “Why don’t you fellowship with our people?

Aha! In this day and age? Seriously! Super Awkward – I was so stunned and speechless. I thought to myself “Who are my peeps? And I immediately realize that I do not have the time and patience to give a proper answer, I simply nod my head, smiled and moved on.

Don’t ever let people define you or put you in a box. Who are my peeps? What do they look like? Where do they live? Even in the body of Christ there is disunity. This shouldn’t be so. We are one in Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

My People Are;

My people are the children of God from all nations and tongues. Their message is love. Their language is peace.Their culture is honor and diversity. They come in different age, color and nationality. And within them they carry the light of Christ. They are everywhere and when
I’m with them, I am home.
And together we are doing life because we know whose we are.

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)
