    I have struggled with the exclusive nature of God’s Gospel in the past because I know some really good people that don’t share my faith perspective. It is hard for me to accept that these people will be judged if they don’t believe as I do and accept Jesus Christ as the son of the one God and savior of all humankind, but I do. I don’t have to agree with it or even like it to believe it. That is why it’s called faith. I have faith in God and I leave the judging up to Him. For me the important take away from today’s text is not about the reality of judgment, that is God’s role, it’s about my identity and my purpose as a believer. I am a Christ Follower (Disciple of Christ), a Minister of God’s reconciliation, and an Ambassador for Christ in the world (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). This identity defines and informs my purpose in life, why I exist. My values and everything I do should flow from my identity and my purpose. Lord let it be so with me!
