Member of the Family

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.  And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"  So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.IMG_2763Anyone who has a pet will testify that they are members of the family.  They are accepted and loved just because they are in your household.  They belong.

We are members of the family of God.  We are accepted and loved because we belong to Jesus.  We are in His household.

Just as we adopt our pets and welcome them into our homes, Jesus adopts us.  Everything he owns is ours because we are related by blood to Him.  We belong.

Our pets have no problem believing this and live accordingly.  We need to start believing we are children of God and live and act accordingly.

We are heirs of the kingdom.  All He has is ours.  Believe it!  Claim it and live like a child of the King!
