Daily Bible Reading

Brother, sister, mother

What does your church family look like? Is it just your blood family sitting in the row next to you? Perhaps some extended family as well? Or is it the church in it’s entirety?

This last Sunday, the young adults in our church did me proud. With no encouragement from myself (or anyone else that I know of), they instigated a church-wide invitation to go out for lunch. Folks that might not normally dine together met up at a restaurant and shared a meal together.

This is what church family is. It is the young and old, married and single, leaders and followers getting together to get to know each other and to enjoy each other’s company. The purpose of the church body, aside from spreading the Gospel is Christian fellowship. It is to extend your family beyond the boundaries of your home and to include those who may not have family at all.

Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!

Matthew 12:50 (NLT)
