Verna Davis: Families just agree to disagree, but do so with love

(Continued)

Hebrews 2:11 says, “Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.” God told us, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters,” says the Lord Almighty,” 2 Corinthians 6:18. The sacrifice of Jesus for our sins is what makes us family. “You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus,” Galatians 3:26-28.

Those who don’t attend church don’t always understand that the church is not a building or a location. The church is the people of God. The church is made of people with all kinds of differences that are held together by their mutual love of Jesus. Each Sunday morning and each meeting throughout the week is like a family reunion, for we’re family, and we love to spend time with each other.

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins,” (1 Peter 4:8).

Verna Davis, author and speaker, lives in Frankton. She can be reached at Vrdspeaks@yahoo.com.
