The Household Of God

Topic: The Household Of God

Author: Pastor Abraham David

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God. Ephesians 2:19

God has a family. The whole world is not His family, and not every man or woman is a member of His family. He made the whole world but the whole world does not recognize Him as God, that’s why not the whole world belongs to His family.

The Bible reveals to us the family of God, and the members of His family referred to as the household of God according to our today’s theme verse. Who are the members of the household of God? The Saints. The scripture says of those who have received Christ and have become born again, “now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.” It doesn’t matter where a person is coming from, the moment you receive salvation, you are translated instantly to God’s kingdom and made a member of God’s glorious family. Becoming a member of God’s household distinguishes the individual from the rest of the world.

Those Who are not born again are strangers, they are strangers to God, completely foreigners, and that means they are not known by God; it doesn’t matter what they say, or claim to know about Him, if they don’t confess Jesus as Lord and receive salvation, God doesn’t know them, meaning they are strangers to anyone who is a child of God. But you are not a stranger to God if you’ve received salvation, you are a fellow citizen with the Saints of God. Hallelujah!

Some people think we are all one, but that’s not true, we are not one; we might be one in the flesh, but spiritually, we are not one. Henceforth, stop classifying all men as one, we can’t be all one until we all become members of God’s family. Everywhere in the Bible, we see the scripture distinguishing between those who are God’s people and those who are not. We are told that strangers, those who were not saved couldn’t join themselves with the Saints in the Church at Jerusalem, because they knew they didn’t fit in, “And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.” Act 5:13

As God’s people and members of God’s family, we should be good to all men, both those who are strangers to God and members of the family of God, that’s what the scripture says in Galatians 6:10, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” By being good to all men, we would be able to get more people saved so that they also can become members of God’s family; that’s our major assignment, to help people make decision for the Lord so that the household of God would keep growing and expanding.

My dear Father, I pray for all the people who are yet to receive and confess Jesus as the Lord of their lives that you help them to make decision to be saved and be brought into your glorious family. I pray also for all the Saints, that by your grace and your Spirit at work in us, we shall continue to be good to all men, so that through our goodness to them, many more people would be saved, in Jesus name. Amen.
