THE SPIRITUAL FAMILY

July 18, 2021

Morning: Ephesians 2:19

Noon: Psalm 85

Evening: Galatians 6:10


When we are born, we are born into a certain family. Irrevocably, our blood, traits, and even our actions can reveal the perpetual belonging that we have to our genealogy. We can’t disconnect!


This should be the same in the family of Christ. When we are born again, we automatically become children of God and therefore, joint heirs with Christ; We are entitled to the goods that He possesses, and we are welcomed into another very special family — the spiritual one.


Disputes, disagreements, misunderstandings, and many other things like these, are also triggered in this beautiful family. However, there is a big difference. Your earthly family is there for congenital and divine reasons; you carry the seal since your fertilization and you didn’t get to decide whether or not to belong to it. On the other hand, in your spiritual family, your decision counts. You belong if you want, and you stop belonging in the same manner. However, there are those who — precisely because of their decision to belong to it —decide to dispense, tolerate, love and forgive everything in order to not be cut off from this family, where no created thing can separate us from the love of the One who called us as children and made us brothers and sisters, by manifesting himself as Father.


Over there you count, whether you want to or not. Here, you count because you want to.

Noon Psalm 85

LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land:

Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people,

Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath:

Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.


4Turn us, O God of our salvation,

And cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?

Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6Wilt thou not revive us again:

That thy people may rejoice in thee?

7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD,

And grant us thy salvation.


8I will hear what God the LORD will speak:

For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: But let them not turn again to folly.

9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;

That glory may dwell in our land.


10Mercy and truth are met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11Truth shall spring out of the earth;

And righteousness shall look down from heaven.


12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good;

And our land shall yield her increase.

13Righteousness shall go before him;

And shall set us in the way of his steps.
