“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
I was talking with a girl at AWANA about the fact that she was my sister in Christ. She is nine and had a hard time getting her mind around the concept judging from the reaction I got. But we had a good talk about it. This statement from Jesus is a plain truth for us. We who confess His name and do His will are brothers and sisters of Christ and of each other. This is a great comfort when we may be far away from our flesh and blood family. We are never far away from the family of God. And that family links us all together, no matter where we go.
