The Bible says, " Jesus and the people He makes holy all belong to the same family. That's why He isn't ashamed to call them His brothers and sisters." Let that amazing truth sink in. You are part of God's family, and Jesus makes you holy, God is proud of you. The words of Jesus is unmistakable; " JESUS" pointed to His disciples and said, " There are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brothers and sisters and mother." Being included in God's family is the highest honor and the greatest privilege you will ever receive. Nothing else comes close. Whenever you feel unimportant, unloved, or insecure, remember to whom you belong.
When we place our faith in Jesus Christ, God is becomes our Spiritual Father, we become His children, other true and born again believers becomes our brothers and sisters, and the Church becomes our spiritual family home.
Every human being was created by God, but not everyone is a child of God. The only way to get into God's family is by being born again into it. You become part of the human family by your first birth, but you become a member of God's family by your second. God " has given us the privilege of being born again, so that we are now members of God's own family." This spiritual family is even more important than your physical family because it will last forever. our physical families on earth are wonderful gifts from God, but they are temporary and fragile, often broken by divorce, distance, growing old, and inevitable, death. On the other hand, our spiritual family - our relationship to other believers- will continue throughout eternity. It is much stronger union, a more permanent bond, than blood relationship.
The moment you were spiritually born into God's family, you were given some astounding birthday gifts; the family name, the family likeness, family privileges, family intimate access, and the family inheritance. " Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him." I John 3:1. " And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, " Abba, Father." Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." Galatians 4: 6,7.
