God's Family of Friends

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Ephesians 1:5

“His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.”

Max's Message:

God offers you a family and friends and friends who are family-- his church. When you transfer your trust into Christ, he not only pardons you; he places you in his family of friends. "Family" far away outpaces any other biblical term to describe the church. "Brothers" or "brothers and sisters" appears a whopping 148 times between the book of Acts and the book of Revelation. God heals his family through his family. In the church we use our gifts to love each other, honor one another, keep an eye on troublemakers, and carry each other's burdens.
