God's Family

Today's reading: Ephesians 1:1-14; Galatians 4:1-7

We're going to spend the next couple of weeks reading through and considering Ephesians. This Book is one I turn to often because it is rich with lessons, examples and teaching. I'm excited for what God is going to reveal to each of us as we work through its six chapters.

Both Ephesians 1:1-14 and Galatians 4:1-7 let us know that we are children of God, that God chose us and adopted us, and that we are sons (and daughters) and heirs of God. Being a child of God or being part of the family of God is talked about commonly in Christian circles. But how often do we really stop and take time to consider what a privilege it is to be a child of God, and what that really means--not only to us but to God? These passages caused me to do that today. It was a good exercise that prompted a thankful prayer to God for His incredible love for me (and you).

What does being a child of God (an heir) mean for you personally? How would you explain or describe it to someone? What does Ephesians 1:3-14 show you about how much God values and loves you? Tami
