Insights from a Glory-Bound Lady”
Volume 2 Number 24 “I am Part of a New Family!”
June 12th, 2019
As you have viewed photos of planet Earth from outer space, perhaps you have felt as tiny and insignificant as have I. However! The wonderful truth is that we are not tiny and insignificant to the Lord. Isn’t that amazing! In fact, we who have trust Christ alone for salvation have been gloriously brought into His family. That’s right. We are His family.
Karen was teaching about this glorious truth in one of her ladies’ seminars. Using Ephesians 3:14-15 she wrote out several wonderful truths about being part of God’s family. Let me share the verse and a couple of the things that she wrote and taught.
“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named” (Ephesians 3:14-15).
Karen wrote: I was a lost sinner according to Romans 3:23. But Jesus saved me. What a change took place in my life. I was forgiven, sealed with the Holy Spirit, made a child of God, became joint-heirs with Christ, gained a new citizenship and even became part of a new family.
• I am loved unconditionally (John 3:16).
• I am forgiven immediately when I sin and confess it (1 John 1:9).
• I have a home for all eternity (John 14:1-3).
• I am corrected and disciplined when necessary (Hebrews 12:5-6).
This is what God wants for us! Read Ephesians 3:17-21 when you have time.
Michael’s observation: It is wonderful to be part of the family of God. I am a little teary-eyed as I read Karen’s handwritten notes about this precious subject. She loved teaching these truths. She really understands the joy of being in the Lord’s family today! We need to take a few seconds to thank the Lord again for His abundant blessings.
