Family records

Hello, God has given me something in 2 Chronicles 2:62 which says,

“These searched for their family records, but they could not find them and so were excluded from the priesthood as unclean.”

People: Some of the people were trying to find their family records, but they could not find them, so they were excluded as unclean. They couldn’t find the proof of their family line to be included, so they were excluded. If any of them did not have proof to show their family, they were not included.

Christians: Christians are included in the family line of Christ. We are bound for heaven. Unlike unbelievers, who are bound for hell because they do not have the family records of Christ, we are welcomed into the kingdom of God. Why not come and join us? Why not come and get the family records of Christ, and be accepted into the kingdom?

What to do: As true Christians, we are to do things. We worship Christ, and serve Him. We also hold on to our family records, we hold on to the cross. We cling to our savior, and the passage He gave us into Heaven. We don’t lose our family records.

Christ: Christ is our almighty, wonderful, awesome, amazing, savior. Praise His Holy name. Give Him all you praise, and rejoice in Him. Give Him your life. Give thanks to His wonderful name. Thank You God for giving Your only son for us. Praise Him, give Him Your heart. He is a wonderful, merciful God.

Gospel: What is the Gospel? It is that Jesus gave His own life for us, and He died for us. He was born of a virgin to be mocked, spit at, hated, beaten, betrayed, tempted, plotted against, lied about, saddened, righteously angered, and crucified. He did all of that, for a bunch of rebelling wretches that wanted to kill Him. He must have a great amount of love and mercy to go through all that for us. God must have a lot of love to make us His children (1 John 3:1).

Application: How does Ezra 2:62 apply to us? We were like the people, we did not have a family record to show that we God’s children. We were bound for hell. But, Christ came down, and gave us His birth certificate, making us God’s. He was crucified so that we might go to heaven. Jesus is the only way to Heaven (John 14:6), when we get His birth certificate, we are then taken up in Him.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your son for us. Thank You for giving us Your birth certificate. Please help me to grow more and more like You. Please help me to love You more. Help me to run to You for help, and talk with You more. Thank You for making me You daughter. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse(s):

The way, John 14:6,

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Love, 1 John 3:1,

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

Beginning verse, Ezra 2:62,

“These searched for their family records, but they could not find them and so were excluded from the priesthood as unclean.”

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
