The Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost
How and why does God call us family?
God’s plan for man was perfect. He created woman for man. They were to “become one flesh.” Sin entered the world and separation replaced union—separation from God and from one another. Bitter marriages and divorces are two examples. But thanks be to God, Jesus suffered death so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone and create new life and a new promise of union – a family made up of the one who makes people and the people he made holy.
Here is God's Word for this coming Sunday and Monday that shows us how God makes us a part of his family:
"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1) I pray that I will see you all on Sunday or on Monday. God bless!
