No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is Himself God, is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.- John 1:18
Jesus came to show everyone the way to the Father, especially those that knew little or nothing about Him. He showed us that sometimes being in a family means sacrifice. It often requires putting someone else’s feelings and needs above our own. God, the Father, demonstrated the extent He would go to make us part of His family through the sacrifice of His own Son. For us, it may be the sacrifice of time, or finances, or exercising Tough Love when it hurts our hearts.
We may be asked to extend the boundaries of our “family” to others who need the love that only a Christian family can provide. It is in sharing our God that we better understand the true impact of who He is and who we can be. Welcome to the family of God and all the rewards and responsibilities it brings.
