We find in the Bible that God is a relational God and relationships are important to Him. We find His relationship with the Son and Holy Spirit; and His relationship with us as believers. So, it is important that we hold close to our heart’s our relationship with God, family and friends. Now, as we are entering the summer season, may we look forward to gathering with family and friends at home, at the park, at the beach, at church or wherever we might gather. It is a great opportunity to share
the love of Jesus with one another (John 13:34-35), especially with family and friends who may not have a personal relationship with Jesus. Our goal should be to fulfill the will of God, sharing Jesus with those who do not know Him that they too can be a part of the family of God. The Bible tells us that when we receive God's Spirit at salvation, we are adopted into his family. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name; who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13). Have a blessed summer and may Jesus’ name be known to many, and the family of God increase!
