Verse of the Day

“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household,”- Ephesians 2:19
Because of what Jesus did we are no longer left on the outside. We are members of the family of God, with no need to prove our rights to that claim. Jesus' sacrificial death and resurrection tore down the Law and its regulations that separated us from Him. He brought with Him a new covenant of love that is stronger and easier to carry. Continued love for the Father and our neighbors keeps our relationship close and unbreakable. Jesus' death and resurrection allows His prodigal sons and daughters to come home to love, mercy, and all the glory that is our heavenly Father.
