The Christian family and home is wonderful It si so because it emulates "God's household," the best family of all. Eph. 2:19 Later in Ephesians Paul prayed to God the Father from whom every family in heaven and earth is named. Eph. 3:15 God is the Father of His eternal Son by personal relationship. He is the Father of the angels and mankind by creation. He is the Father of Israel by a covenantal promise. And He is the Father of believers through faith in His Son . Peter also pictured believers corporately as being built into a spiritual house. 1 Peter 2:5
Though all Christians are members of God's household, each one has different functions and responsibilities to perform.
How about you? Are you a member of God's Family? If so are you an instrument in His hands? Do you fulfill your duties?
