"IN FAITH, HE..." Devotional from Cherbear

A Godly Family! The Family of God!

    I am a member of a Godly family. "IN FAITH, HE..." led me to the family of God.

A Godly Family. Living under the Holy Spirit's direction and leadership. Submission to God's will. Living for Jesus. Trusting in the Lord. Love is a decision. These phrases are familiar to members in the body of Christ, and reflect how we are to live life on this earth. A Godly family will reflect God's unconditional love to others, while living in obedience to His Word. If you are a member of a family that seeks to live and obey the precepts and principles set forth in God's Holy Word, you are a member of a Godly family.

Josh. 24:15 for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.

The Family of God. Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Kindred Spirits. God's own children. Sons of God. Partakers of the Inheritance. These phrases are also familiar to members in the body of Christ. The family of God consist of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, together with God's redeemed children. These children will never seize to be members of the eternal life given by Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who have trusted in Jesus for their salvation in a personal relationship with Him, will live forever for eternity in God's unconditional love. Forever! That's a Big Promise! God is faithful in His promises. We need to be faithful members of the Body of Christ.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

Are you a member of the Family of God? If you are, God appointed a family of Christian sisters and brothers to you prior to your salvation, even prior to your birth. They are to help you grow in your walk with Him. To guide, protect, support, comfort, and love you!

Here is my link for children on the subject of salvation.

This is where you can find out if you really know Him!

1Cor. 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Rom. 12:4-5 ...we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

If you are not a member of a church on fire for God, please ask God to lead you to your church family. He says you will know them by their fruits. This family will exhibit the fruits of His Spirit, and the Pastors will not depart from teaching the Holy Bible as the infallible, inherent words of God.

Father, I thank you for my Godly family. I thank you for directing my path to a church where I can live my life in the Word and grow in the family of God. Amen!

Fruit of the Spirit Series

An 8 week series on the Fruit of the Holy Spirit

This week is the second of the fruit of the Spirit series from Gramma Cherbear and her critters. Remember, I received these lessons, which came to me week by week, in reverse order. For more information on the Fruit of the Spirit, I found Charles Stanley's book, "A Spirit Filled Life, " to be a wonderful resource and a life changing publication.

"But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good.It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself. There is no law against things of that kind."

Galatians 5:22-23
