I am thankful for my kindred in Christ.
God has so blessed His people by giving them each other. We each go through trials and heartaches that may or may not be known to others, but we have the Lord and His people there to encourage us along the way. These dear ones don’t just feel like family, they are family. Some are actually blood related, but more importantly, we are spiritually related. There is a special bond among His people that is hard to fully describe. I’ve been to another country and met believers there and felt the same bond. By His blessing, this love for each other crosses languages, customs, and cultures. I’m so very thankful for my dear church and for the dear ones in our sister churches across the country and the world.
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7
