Your family may be big or small or medium. No family is the same, and God put you on earth to enjoy having a family, and to help Him have a bigger one!
See, when we tell people how Jesus died for them and they believe in Him (get saved), then they are adopted into God’s family. And that is the very best place to be!
Did you know that, if someone believes in Jesus, even if they are from a different country, that they become part of the family of God? As the Word says in Acts 10:34:
“Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.”
That’s right, it doesn’t matter where someone is from, if they love and believe in what Jesus did on the cross for them, they are your brothers and sisters in Christ, and you are theirs! All believers in Jesus are one big family!
Isn’t that wonderful?
So, if you know Jesus, you have brothers and sisters all over the world!
The family is where we understand much about how God loves us because we are shown love by our mother and father and brothers and sisters. And we show them love. When we show love to each other, we are showing how God feels about us.
