God Is a Family

Perhaps the most profound truth about the nature of God, though understood by very few, is that God is a Family! This truth is utterly obscured by the “trinity” teaching. The ultimate destiny of human beings, originally made in God’s image from the dust of the ground, is that they might be converted or changed by an inward spiritual renewal and ultimately born again into the very Family of God at the resurrection. God is bringing many sons to glory (Hebrews 2:10)! Jesus Christ is described as the firstborn among many brethren (Romans 8:29).
Notice Scripture’s plain revelation about the Godhead. In Genesis 1:1, we read that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The Hebrew word used for God is Elohim—a word that is plural in form though often singular in usage. A little later, in Genesis 1:26, we learn that God said: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” God’s supreme purpose is to reproduce Himself!
Notice what Paul explained in Romans 8:14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” What is the implication of this? If we are God’s children, we are His heirs; “heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (v. 17). Ultimately, God’s children will be “filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19). God is building a family, and that family takes its name from the Father—it is the Family of God (3:14–15).
The real truth of what God is like, and what He is doing, goes far beyond anything that most have ever imagined. God is knowable because He has chosen to reveal Himself. He wants you to come to know Him, and to build a relationship with Him that will lead to you being part of His very family forever!
