THE FAMILY HE BUILTS


 
            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).
            Bible calls everyone those who believe in Jesus Christ as the children of God (John 1:12). And when we come to Jesus and be created as the new creation and led by the Spirit of God then we will become the Sons of God (Romans 8:14). From the beginning God is very much interested in the creation of the family for we can see what God said after creation of man, God said, it is not good for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18), that is the time the idea of family is existed in His mind. From that time God was keep on building the families. Psalmist David said about the decree of the LORD, You are my Son, today I have become your father (Psalm 2:7) and God sets the lonely into the families (Psalm 68:6).
            Who else we have in this family that is built by God, we have a Father, an elder brother Jesus Christ and the brothers and sisters. The author of Hebrews says that, Jesus is not ashamed to call us brothers (Hebrews 2:11). In this world though we may live among many, yet we may feel loneliness, it is the very painful time in our life. To deliver us from these painful situations, God is building His own family and He has accepted us as the members of His own family by giving us the unfailing Grace (Ephesians 1:4-6). This house is built by God so it is a secured family.
            Dear brothers and sisters, even if we are facing the loneliness among the many, we need not to worry of this. For we have a family which is filled with the Grace of God and Glory of God, and where we are not second class children, we need not to knock the door as an outsider, but we are the children and He is waiting for us with open arms. For when we come to know The LORD through Jesus Christ, we are highly favored one (Luke 1:28).
            GOD BLESS YOU
