Prayer: What is your heritage. What are your family ties? Have there been famous people in your family history, great leaders or kings? Are you proud of your nationality? Many people take pride in their family name, coat of arms, and achievement. Each new Christian is announced, celebrated and welcomed in to the family of God. There is great rejoicing in Heaven when you accept God's gift. John 1:12 says that when you receive Jesus as Savior, you are given the privilege of becoming children of God, part of God's family. Your pride is being united with brothers and sisters in God's family. We belong to each other, we have a single heritage. We care for one another, help one another, love one another. Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote a song that says, "I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God" You have the confirmation of God's Spirit telling you that you belong to God's family. Here is your heritage: *You are a family member, an heir. Gal. 4:7 *You have a heavenly citizenship. Phil.3:20 *You have God's riches. Phil. 4:19 *You have a caring family that loves you fervently. I Peter 4:8 *You have a Comforter living in you. John 14:26. *You have treasures in heaven. Matt. 6:20 *You have a home prepared for you. John 14:2 *You have everlasting life. John 3:16 Rejoice in your special family. Your Father adores you. Joyfully, Joyce
