“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:5
God created us to be His family. Throughout the Bible, you can tell that God treasures relationships. He wants a relationship with us, but not just any relationship… a spiritual family relationship.
There are so many different kinds of relationships that we can have throughout our lifetime. The first relationship that we usually begin to unravel is the relationship of family. When we think of family, we think of people connected by blood or deep personal ties. We think of people that were there for us when no one else was. We think of the strong feeling that draws us together. A connection unexplainable.
Not all of people’s feelings about family are positive though. Some people’s views of family are negative and they tend to repel against anything that could possibly allow them to be close to having a “family” of any sort. OR it may drive them to search for family in all the wrong places other than where they need to be looking.
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Matthew 18:20
There is so much hate and evil in this world. God gives us the strength to get through those time when hate and evil comes at us, but when more than one believer of God’s family comes together to fight evil together, you will see mountains move faster than if you were by yourself. God’s family, when together, can be a very powerful way of showing what God can really do through people.
I’ve always believed that just one person can make a large ripple effect in this world. I also believe that when one person finds another person to connect to with the same mission, then those ripples will become bigger.
As Christians, our biggest commission should be to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone we meet. Since we all have that same mission, then we should be able to come together and create CHANGE. It’s important that we come together to create a BIGGER change than ourselves.
“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,” John 1:12
God’s family isn’t just for those that are “do gooders” or just for those that go to church every Sunday. God’s family is an opportunity for EVERYONE that receives Him into their hearts, believes in Him, and lays down their life to follow Him.
If you haven’t accepted Jesus into your heart and if you haven’t become apart of this eternally living family, please reach out to me to find out how you can become apart of it today! Don’t put it off any longer, because you never know when your journey on this earth will end. It could end at any moment and you’re not going to want to miss out on what God’s family has to offer after your journey here on this earth ends….
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this opportunity to be apart of your all powerful family. It truly has been a blessing to me, because I’ve seen mountains being moved a lot faster than if I was on my own. Please help me to become more active and loving towards the Family of yours that You have blessed me with. Help me to grow through You by reaching out to them and worshipping with them, Lord. Thank you again. For it’s in your name I pray,
