For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life. John 3:16
Your family in Jesus joins you in an unbroken line with believing followers, disciples, which generationally make up the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. As Jesus’ family, God’s concern for your life meets you at your greatest need. In Jesus there is no worry/sin/sorrow/despair that may drag you away like a mad dog, that can drag you down like sea kelp caught around your legs and feet, that can pull you away like a fierce evil tornado wind.
God’s family love secures you in Jesus. Jesus’ peace calms confusion, relieves discomfort, aids you with His wisdom for right choices, and affirms the genuine loving hospitality of God. Jesus loves you and assures of that love. In Jesus you have everything. When Jesus dies on the hilltop Cross, sinless and pure, He opens the Way to God’s everything. God and Jesus are one.
Family love begins in God’s Holy Child in Bethlehem manger, is given throughout Jesus’ three year ministry of healing and teaching us about God’s great compassion, very truly revealed in forty days of Resurection appearances to hundreds of folks, then found in the birthday of Jesus’ Church at Pentecost. This our family story. It is about God’s love.
