Today we are examining the importance of the Christian family. We do not run our race of faith alone. We run it with others, and they will depend on us, just as we will depend on them. What do we owe our brothers and sisters in Christ? Because we are all part of the same eternal family, out of our love for Christ, we have an obligation to help one another. Over the years that you have followed Christ - whether they are few or many - who are those special Christians who encouraged you when you were down? Who of God's people loved you through your difficulties and gave you counsel, help, or teaching? None of us would have made it this far if we were all alone in our Christian life. God planned others to help us and for us to help them as well. Let's also seek to find people whom we can help and encourage. Somebody needs your encouragement today.
