Testimony of Faith: Our World Belongs to God #34

In our world, where many journey alone, nameless in the bustling crowd,
Satan and his evil forces seek whom they may scatter and isolate;
but God, by his gracious choosing in Christ, gathers a new community—
those who by God’s gift put their trust in Christ.
In the new community all are welcome:
the homeless come home, the broken find healing, the sinner makes a new start,
the despised are esteemed, the least are honored, and the last are first.
Here the Spirit guides and grace abounds.
