On the drive home from church it was nice to reflect on the Christian Family. There is an old hymn that expresses this better than my words.
- You will notice we say "brother and sister" 'round here,
It's because we're a family and these are so near;
When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear.
I'm so glad I'm a part of the Family of God,
I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His Blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family,
The Family of God
See what love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
Praise God I not only have a large family - I am an heir, because of Jesus Christ.
