πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What Is the Family Name?

“What is the name that ‘the whole family in heaven and earth is named’ after in Ephesians 3:15?”

β€œFor this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named” (Eph. 3:14-15).

The previous verse (Eph. 3:14) provides us with the answer to this question. The name is β€œour Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians teaches the precious, magnificent truth of believers being β€œin Christ” (Eph. 1:3; 2:6,13). The moment we trust the gospel of salvation, we are placed into Christ by the Holy Spirit. As members of His Body, we are united with Christ andΒ His name. In our Savior’s exaltation, He is β€œFar above… every name that is named” (Eph. 1:21). And we are one with Him, joined to His life eternal, resurrection power, seated position, and exalted name (1:17-23).

Paul wrote that the β€œwhole family in heaven and earth” is named after Christ. The β€œwhole family” is the entire familyΒ of God.Β In this epistle, Paul taught about the blessing of believing Gentiles under grace being β€œno more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, andΒ of the household of God” (2:19). We have been born by the Spirit into β€œthe household,” or the family, β€œof God.”

β€œHeaven and earth” are the two places you can currently find theΒ whole family of God. Part of the family is already home in heaven, and the rest of the family is here on earth, representing Christ to this world as His ambassadors (2 Cor. 5:20). We are all one in Christ; we belong completely to Him, and we are one with His name: β€œour Lord Jesus Christ.” source

Bible Verse for 10/31/20

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. — 1 Peter 5:8-9
