God is Love and Love is relational. Our God identifies himself in family terms. Father, Son and Spirit. God treasures relationships. The trinity is God’s relationship to himself. Due to his nature of being relational he created us so that he can bring us to his family and share with us all that he has.
His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure. Eph 1:5.
When we place our faith in Christ, God becomes our Father, we become his children and other believers become our brothers and sisters. Although all humans were created by God, not all are his children. The only way to get into Gods family is by being born again into it. We become part of the human family by the first birth and by being born again the second birth you become a member of Gods family. John 1:12-13 But to all who have received him, those who believe in his name, he has given the right to become God’s children .children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God. and also 1 Peter 1:3 God gives us the privilege of being born again so that we can become members of his own family
Our human families here on earth are a wonderful gift from God and an even more important is the Godly family as it lasts into eternity. Our human families have limitations and shortfalls they are temporary and fragile and often broken by divorce, distance, growing old and inevitably death. On the contrary our spiritual family will continue for ever through eternity. It is therefore worthwhile to invest in this family which outlast our current human family.
Like in any other family being born again has its benefits. There are great birthday presents which include the family name, family likeness, family privileges, family intimate access and the family heritage. My God will meet all your needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus Philippians 4: 19 Here on earth we are given riches of : his grace, his mercy, his kindness, his patience, his wisdom, his glory and his power. In eternity we shall inherit even more. We shall get to be with the God forever. We will be completely changed to be like Christ for ever, we will be free from all pain, death and suffering. we will be rewarded and assigned positions of service and we will get to share Christ’s glory.
