THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
When I graduated high school, I went to Northeast Louisiana State College on a little scholarship.
Immediately, when I moved into the dormitory, I knew it was NOT “home”! I felt UNsettled!
Later, I joined the USAF, and went to Lackland AFB for basic training.
Again, it was NOT “home”!
Then, Keesler AFB for more training.
Then, Clark AFB in the Philippines.
Then Barksdale AFB.
Ann & I bought a house there.
After leaving the USAF, I went to work for Safeway Stores, Inc.
We moved 28 times in 15 years!
But EVERY PLACE was “home”!
KNOWING that I had a “home” with “family!”
4 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
Sadly, most of the people of the world today live without the solidity of family.
Tremendous numbers of children are reared in broken families.
But we can have a family in Jesus!
Notice the Scripture above.
Paul does not say “families.”
All in Christ are ONE!
The local church provides the atmosphere for a family in Christ.
And each of us derive our personal status from Christ Himself.
In another place, Paul says,
“But now are they many members, yet but one body.” (1 Cor 12:20)
Yes we’re all DIFFERENT, but we are members of Christ’s “body” – the family of God.
Do you have a place where you are SETTLED in the world?
Jesus WANTS you to have that place.
You can have it in His local church!
