True believers in Jesus Christ are a family. When the Apostle Paul penned his letter to the Church at Colossae nearly 2,000 years ago He reminded them tenderly of this relationship we have with each other.
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To God’s holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ: Grace and peace to you from God our Father.
If you believe in Jesus Christ and have repented of your sins you are my brother and sister even though I may have never met you. Also, God Himself is the father of both of us. Those who are true Christians are never alone, even when we are physically isolated from those who love us because we Have a Father in Heaven who is watching our every move, and we have many brothers and sisters who are praying for us.
