First and foremost I want to say we have to remember God is the Father of all not just us Christians. Everyone who isn’t saved should be treated as if they were the Prodigal Son. God is patiently waiting for them to come to Him.
If someone comes to Christ than there should be a joyous celebration, Jesus said in Luke 15:10, “10 Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Many still bring up past sins to new Christians but the Lord says He will cast our sins in to the depths of the sea. We are not bigger than God so if He chooses to forgive someone’s sins, than we need to move on from them as well.
Jesus is the King of Kings but He is also the Son of God and according to the Bible we are joint heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus didn’t just call us brothers and sisters to be nice to us, we are one big family of God and the Father gave us the best big Brother possible.
Because we are brothers and sisters in Christ we must treat each other as family not just other people who believe the same as us.
I was listening to a Christian radio station and a caller was discussing a generous thing he had done for someone in his family, the host made a joke to the caller about borrowing money, the man replied, “No, you’re not blood.”
I know that the conversation was just in the joking sense but it still stuck with me. We have to remember your Christian family is just as important as your personal family, in some cases more important. This is God’s Family, God is more important than us as individuals.
Also I would like to point out we are all “blood”; remember in the Bible we are all descendants from the same two people.
Truly though, the most important blood that connects us is the blood of Jesus Christ and that means much more than the blood that pumps through our veins.
Have a blessed week,
