“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in Love,” –Ephesians 1:3-4
Isn’t it comforting to know that God had you in mind and chose us even before the Foundations of the world? Many of us may have had bad ideas of the term family because of the family we grew up in, maybe you were abused or written off and now there’s a hurt in you that you are even skeptical of being part of God’s Family.
God’s wants you to know you are loved and desires to heal you of such hurt and that’s why he has placed us in Families.
Our Church for one is a great family to join.
In God’s Family, we are united as one, called unto Him, as God has grafted us all into his family though we be many.
In Ephesians 2:19 “Now, therefore,you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God”.
We are now of the Household of God, this is your newfound Family, you don’t need to feel insecure, ashamed, guilty and condemned because you are now a new creature and of the Family of God.
We are God’s products; God couldn’t have done anything unless He reproduces Himself.
Now that we know we are to part of God’s Family, we must get others to see this is the desire of our Father to get them to be a part of his Family which he predestined even before the Foundations of the World.
