What family are you in?

James 1:17-18  Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.  18  He chose to give birth to us by giving us His true word. And we, out of all creation, became His prized possession.

Matthew 5:16  In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Ephesians 1:2  May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

One of the revelations about God that is found mostly in the New Testament is that God is our Father. How cool it is that we can say that God is our Father

God has adopted us into his family, something that was only possible because he first made us right with him through the redeeming sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf, we are now his prized possession, sons and daughters of the King.  Imagine being treasured far above everything else in all of creation, it is a pretty awesome creation and very fascinating, it is hard to believe that God loves me and values me above everything else that he made.

It is a love that we can count on forever because we know that our father never changes, he choose to make us his family and there isn't anything that can change his mind, I will always be his son.

Thank you Lord for adopting me into your family, I must not forget that you are in love with me and will never forsake me.
