Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

You’re One of the Family

on September 25, 2016

1 John 3:1a-  “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”

 

I opened the blinds to the patio door outside our bedroom and was surprised by two bobcats!

“Whoa, you don’t belong here!” I shouted.

A friend told me about a family reunion she attended. It wasn’t quite the experience she had envisioned. “I love them all,” she said, “but we seemed so different. They were laughing and talking, but I felt like I didn’t fit in…like I didn’t belong.”

To please a friend, I once “played” a round of golf. The only thing I was good at was driving the cart. I couldn’t even hit the ball. I didn’t understand the terminology in order to take part in their conversation. Golf just wasn’t for me. I felt like I didn’t belong.

Have you ever felt that way?

Left out of the “loop?”
Like you don’t belong?

If you are a believer in Christ, God tells us you DO belong—to HIM!

He created you…knit you together in your mother’s womb!  (Psalm 139:13)

You are his child.
Like a father loves and cares for his children

God loves you.

He cherishes you.

You have a special identity as a child of God. You are connected to Him with an unbreakable bond.

You never have to feel alone.

You’re one of the family.
