YOUR NEW FAMILY!
For this reason, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named (Ephesians 3:14-15).
Every Christian belongs to a very large family; this is the family of God and Jesus Christ is the Head of this family. The Bible says in Genesis 22:17-18 thus, “Blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gates of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” Abraham and all his descendants including you are members of this new family of God.
Furthermore, God made an everlasting covenant with Abraham and his descendants forever. He promised to bless Abraham and his descendants, and you are a beneficiary of that blessing. No wonder Apostle Paul says in Galatians 3:29, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” The promise in this verse is referring to the blessing of Abraham. This is the family that every Christian is born into; and in this family there is no failure, sickness, poverty, barrenness and lack because you belong to the Abrahamic covenant.
This new family is special and unique. You do not become a member either by blood or natural birth. You become a member when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in John 1:12-13, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” This is the Davidic lineage of champions and winners. Therefore, a Christian is a member of the greatest, wealthiest and most successful family; which is the family of God?
Daily Tip: Every Christian is a part and member of the family of God, and Jesus Christ is the Head of that family. Shalom!
Golden Text: And if children, then heirs-heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together (Romans 8:17).
