Jesus Said, “WHOEVER DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER IN
HEAVEN IS MY BROTHER AND SISTER AND MOTHER.”
( MATTHEW 12:50 *NIV )

Dear Friend,

Now it is written that; YOU ARE ALL SONS OF GOD
THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, FOR ALL OF YOU
WHO WERE BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE CLOTHED
YOURSELVES WITH CHRIST. THERE IS NEITHER JEW
NOR GREEK, SLAVE NOR FREE, MALE NOR FEMALE,
FOR YOU ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS.
( GALATIANS 3:26-28 )

Further Friend; BECAUSE YOU ARE SONS, GOD
SENT THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS, THE
SPIRIT CALLS OUT, “ABBA, FATHER.” SO YOU ARE NO
LONGER A SLAVE, BUT A SON; AND SINCE YOU ARE A
SON, GOD HAS MADE YOU ALSO AN HEIR.
( GALATIANS 4:6-7 )

CONSEQUENTLY, YOU ARE NO LONGER FOREIGNERS
AND ALIENS, BUT FELLOW CITIZENS WITH GOD’S PEOPLE
AND MEMBERS OF GOD’S HOUSEHOLD, BUILT ON THE
FOUNDATION OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS, WITH
JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF AS THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE.
( EPHESIANS 2:19-20 )

So; DEAR FRIENDS, NOW WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD,
AND WHAT WE WILL BE HAS NOT YET BEEN MADE
KNOWN. BUT WE KNOW THAT WHEN HE APPEARS, WE
SHALL BE LIKE HIM, FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS.
( 1 JOHN 3:2 )

So Friend, when ever you are feeling down and depressed,
just think about who you are, an heir of your Heavenly Father!
That fact should cheer you up indeed! Amen!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
