Genesis 7:1 NIV
 The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation
Joshua 6:23 NIV
 So the young men who had done the spying went in and brought out Rahab, her father and mother, her brothers and sisters and all who belonged to her. They brought out her entire family and put them in a place outside the camp of Israel.
Here are two examples of Gods salvation for a family – a picture and encouragement for us as a church maybe! God brings us into a new family by giving us new birth and saves us through all sorts of dangers and attacks. Has it struck you how amazing it is that the Church has survived through the last two thousand years despite all manner of ridicule and persecution? God loves his family and will never forget us!
Thanks you Lord for your power to save and protect your family.
