FAMILY WITH MISFITS

Before my immediate blood related family members misunderstand me, let me clarify, I’m talking about everyone who is related or will be related, blood related, through the blood of Jesus Christ.

God’s Family is:

  • Not a clique of people who think they are all like minded people.
  • Not an organization.
  • Not some type of members only club.

God’s family is open for all who want & need belonging.

Lyrics:

“Family Of God”

I know ya thinking… you’re the only one
I see you hiding out ‘cause of what you’ve done
All your shame got you on the run
I been there, too, and it just ain’t fun

This is a message to the saints
The table has been set, so take your place
There is no more condemnation
There is only grace
We are family here
Colors and stains disappear
There is no doubt you belong
This is the family of God

No matter who you were when you walked through the door
Here you’re no orphan anymore

Brothers and sisters by blood
This is the Family of God
Oh, we are
Sons and daughters of the King
We are
We are the royal family

Hey drifter, you can come on home
You’re no stranger, yeah, you are known
Heavy burdens, leave ‘em at the door
‘Cause this is our Father’s world
For this is our Father’s world

This is a message to the saints
The table has been set, so take your place
There is no more condemnation
There is only grace
So, child of God
Your adoption, it is done
This family is forever
And we’ve just begun


So don’t you see that we don’t owe this old do-it-yourself life one red cent. There’s nothing in it for us, nothing at all. The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. God’s Spirit beckons. There are things to do and places to go! This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!
Romans 8:12‭-‬17 MSG

What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to.
1 John 3:1 MSG
http://bible.com/97/1jn.3.1.MSG

Would any of you who are fathers give your son a stone when he asks for bread? Or would you give him a snake when he asks for a fish? Bad as you are, you know how to give good things to your children. How much more, then, will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
Matthew 7:9‭-‬11 GNB
