This week we are talking about the hard truth that, while every individual is important, the Biblical project is not about “you” or “me”. It is about us. From the “People of Israel” (Exodus 3:7) to the “People of the Way” *(Acts 22:4), our scriptures tell us that God is looking to bring together a “people” – a community. Once you were no people, writes Peter; now you are God’s people. (I Peter 2:10.) Our texts for this week are I Corinthians 12:4-14 and Mark 8:34-38.
What does it take to become “Us”? First of all, we have to get over “Me”.
