That is why you are no longer foreigners and outsiders but citizens together with God’s people and members of God’s family. Ephesians 2:19 (GW)
At times we are close to our other family members and sometimes we may feel distant from them. But we are not just part of our earthly family. Once we accept Jesus as Savior, we become a part of God’s people. We are no longer outsiders but accepted to be a part of God’s family. As part of God’s family, we can enjoy being in community with other believers. We can help encourage each other. We can build each other up. We can help others grow to become more like Jesus. We are God’s family members.
Prayer: God, thank you for making me a part of your family. Help me to shine your light to the world around me. Help me to welcome others into your family. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
