Can you imagine having Jesus Christ as your brother in your family, and God as your Father? Of course I'm talking about the family of God.
John 1:12 says, "But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." What's more, Romans 8:16-17 says, "The Spirit (that is, the Holy Spirit) itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God... and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ." And if we're joint heirs with Jesus, that means He and we are brothers. And of course that means that once we're saved, we're loved, as one of the family. And that means when we meet with other Christians, we're loved and are part of one big happy family. That's why the worst sinner, who considers everyone else as enemies who may turn him in to the police, just on general principles, but when he gives his life to the Lord, he becomes one of the family, and is accepted and loved as just one more new addition. All the more reason for sinners to turn to Christ, because Dads and brothers want to protect him, not jail him. But it isn't a magic act. The loss of a loved one or best friend, will still bring grief, but you now have God, His Son, and the Holy Spirit to help you through. What a consolation when a loved one moves on, and you know he or she is now in Heaven, out of life's pain and problems. As sure as invisible Radio and TV fill the air, so does the love of God fill your atmosphere. If you never do anything else, get right with God. Know where you'll spend eternity. Not only will you know you're safe, your Heavenly Father and your Christian family will be comforted. billthorntonconquests.com
