Day 07 – The Family of God

Day 7: “The Family of God”

Forty Days in the Wilderness – A 40 Day Quiet Time Series

 

The relationships in God’s Family are unlike the world’s relationships. The relationships within the Kingdom are based on purity, respect and honor. Relationships within the Church encourage us to remain faithful to the Christian calling, help us correct our wrongs when correction is needed, challenge us to grow when a challenge is needed, and provide support when things get tough. The bible is the standard for great relationships. Man’s relationship with God and Man’s relationship with his fellow man are themes that run deep within the pages of the Bible.

 

I. Mark 3:31-35  

  1. Who did Jesus consider His true relatives?
  2. Do you see God’s Church as your spiritual family?

 

II. Romans 12:10-15   

  1. What does the word “honor” mean?
  2. Do people in your life feel honored and respected by you?
  3. How do you feel when somebody treats you with dishonor? Or with disrespect?
  4. How can you express honor and devotion to your brothers and sisters in the Lord?
  5. What does “practice hospitality” mean?
  6. Can you rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep if you don’t get to know them and spend time with them?

 

III. 1Peter 1:22-23

  1. What is “sincere love”?
  2. How can you love your brother or sister in Christ deeply from the heart?

 

 

For Your Encouragement:

 

  1. Make it your goal this week to spend time with two or more Christians that you haven’t fellowshipped with.
  2. Honor the Family of God and be devoted to the brotherhood of believers through phone calls, visits, Emails, and fellowships.
  3. Learn this song and sing it often to the Lord:

 

We’re part of the Family that’s been born again

Part of the Family whose love knows no end

For Jesus has saved us and made us His own

Now we’re part of the Family that’s on its way home!

 

And sometimes we laugh together, sometimes we cry

Sometimes we share together heartaches and sighs

Sometimes we dream together of how it will be

When we all get to Heaven

God’s Family!
