Day 33: Live Life Devotional

Day 33

We were made to be part of God’s Family

Understanding who you are is very important in finding your purpose. It is an important part to receiving your vision. I want to be clear that not just anyone will be part of God’s family. Yes, we are all spirits and we all have the opportunity to be adopted into the family. However, in order to do that, you must be born again.

What does this mean exactly? What does it mean to be born again?

It means that you have to have a clean spirit. It means that you have to get rid of that old spirit and allow the Lord to place new life, a new mind, and new love into your heart. You can not do this by your works. Instead, you do this by believing with your faith. The more you believe, the stronger your new “born again” spirit becomes.

This process is called accepting the gift of salvation!

In order to be part of God’s family you must believe that you have a brother. Your brother actually came down as a spirit that was never touched by sin. He couldn’t be born from a natural man because all men were affected by sin due to the fall of Adam. So, he became God’s only begotten son. He grew up, he developed a relationship with God. He found out who he really was. He continued to be obedient to God which was very pleasing to God. He received his assignment, his vision, and he was told his destiny. He knew that he was a king of a kingdom that was not of this world. Your brother’s name is Jesus Christ (who I have come to know as Yeshua Hamashiach).  His understanding of truth saved his brothers and sisters from sin.  His love saved us from eternal separation from our father.

You are apart of an everlasting reigning monarchy! We are children of God!!

“God wants a family, and he created you to be a part of it. This is God’s second purpose for your life, which he planned before you were born. The entire Bible is the story of God building a family who will love him, honor him, and reign with him forever.”

-Rick Warren

Let us meditate on this verse:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Ephesians 1:5
