Brothers and sisters in Christ

July 25th, 2009

I had a very profound experience recently while leading a service in our church. As I stood up the front and looked around at the congregation singing I had a real awareness of everyone there being my brothers and sisters in Christ.

As I looked at various faces I felt God say to me this person is your brother in Christ, this person is your sister in Christ. This person is that persons sister or brother and so on.

Then as I was singing I felt God remind me about the Bible verse John1:12. In the NLT it says, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God”.

It was real reminder that everyone there that day who called Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour was my spiritual bother and sister. It was also a nice reminder that will they not only be “related” to me in this life, but for all eternity!

I love the way God reminds us of the great things He has done for us in the midst of us serving Him. He is a great and awesome God!

God Bless,
