People of privilege

We’ve grown so accustomed to our churches, in a bubble of our own making, with our culturally-familiar problems that we’ve forgotten that cross-cultural outreach is central to the work of the cross (Phil. 2:5-8).
Privileged people of the cross seek out, stand with, and stick their necks out for people who have problems that are nothing like their own.
Privileged people of the cross resist the magnetic draw of our culturally-polarized society.
Privileged people of the cross jump every societal hurdle in order to understand the perspective of, stand with and advocate for the other.
Just like Jesus did for us.
And still does.
So one day, our privilege becomes revealed in its eternal fullness.
