I went to a big family reunion today. There I saw people that I hadn't seen in many years; in some cases, not since childhood. There were many more people there that I had never seen before. We were mingling with one another, trying to figure out who belonged to which family. There was one thing we all had in common, we were related.
Our heavenly Father says that we are all children of (God) His. He gives us all His incredible, perfect love that we are counted as His. The world, however does not recognize Him in you. When He comes and is manifested in you, you shall resemble and be like Him. Those that have this hope resting on them, purify themselves. (1John 3:1-3)
We who have fled to Him for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed and set before us. (Hebrews 6:18 b)
The mighty indwelling strenth and strong encouragement comes from the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we are hopeless. Invite Him into your life and be part of His family!
