So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.
Mephibosheth was not part of King David’s family. He was the grandson of Saul, the first king of Israel. David did not have to bring Mephibosheth into his family, but he did, giving Mephibosheth the rights and privileges as if he were born into David’s family. God does the same for us when we have saving faith in Jesus.
Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
