...the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ.
When we think about being In Christ, we are often thinking of our position in Christ. Knowing our proper position in Christ is vital to our Christian life and health. But we are not the only ones who are In Christ. All true Christians are In Christ, and we need to think of them and treat them that way.
Family is important. A hard concept to realize is that our spiritual family is the most important family we belong to. If Jesus must have priority in our lives, that also means His family must have priority in our lives. Of course, I don't mean that we neglect our natural family, but I find often it is the family of God that is neglected.
I am sure we all have Jesus as our top priority. [If not, we have bigger problems!]. Where does His family rate on our list of priorities?
