For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father
is my brother, and sister, and mother.
– Matthew 12:46-50

Answering the question if we belong to God’s family is not a matter of blood relationship. It is a matter of living out the faith, living out the will of the Father. When we truly live it out, first we become His children in baptism. Secondly, we become His children by living out His will & become heirs to the throne.
Do I belong to God’s kinship by name or by deed? In what manner?
