God’s Household

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

God’s family extends beyond blood and boundaries established by man.  His “household” includes everyone under His roof, His protection, His care.  When the Hebrew children were awaiting the Angel of Death to “pass over” their homes sparing their firstborn, anyone behind the doorposts marked with the blood of the lamb were safe – Egyptian, Hebrew, foreigner – foreshadowing how the Blood of the Lamb of God would unite all nations, ethnicities and cultures as His family so many centuries later.

The legacy of His family is that it continues to grow, to be inclusive, to be bound together by love and to share a common history and experience that is greater than our differences for all time.
