Brotherhood of the Redeemed

To them gave he power to become the sons of God. JOHN 1:12

Anyone making even a quick review of Genesis will discover that God has told us more about His presence in creation and in history than about the details of human civilization.

We believe that eternity dwells in the Person of God and that the material universe came into being through God’s creation.

The first man and woman in the human race were created. They failed in their initial encounter with Satan, our archenemy. Following that, the Genesis record becomes a narrative of human failure against the abiding backdrop of God’s faithfulness.

God Himself, through the Holy Spirit, points out a universal problem: The natural brotherhood of human beings is a sinful brotherhood. It is the brotherhood of all who are spiritually lost.

But the Bible has good news. It is the revelation of a new brotherhood, the brotherhood of the redeemed! We know it in our time as the believing Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in all nations. It is a new brotherhood among men based on regeneration—and restoration!

Merciful God, I pray today for the thousands of men and women who are shackled by the chains of sin. Set them free today, Lord, by Your Sprit. Accept them as members of the “brotherhood of the redeemed.”
