“Bring Them Inside” Theology, If You Will

Written by stringbox

If you need a sermon or lesson idea, consider the “Bring Them Inside” meme. There are a few connotations you can tie in, such as we must love as Jesus loved us. John 13:34. If you’ve experienced something, then someone else has or is experiencing it too. So ‘bring them inside’ the fellowship of Christ’s love. If you’re hungry, they’re hungry; if you’re mistreated, they’re mistreated; if you’re scared, they’re scared. You live in the same cold world everyone else does, so ‘bring them inside’ the fellowship.

Further, Jesus lived a human life and was tempted in every way we have been. Hebrews 2:18, 4:15. Therefore, God, through Jesus, is able to ‘bring us inside’ his kingdom where we by nature have no place, just as (some) animals have no usual place in a human home. Yet, because he became human, he is able to sympathize with our weaknesses and advocate on our behalf as the great high priest. Heb 4:16 “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
