Brothers And Sisters

By | May 10, 2010

I was reading a book recently in which the author was talking about how the early believers called one another “brother” and “sister”. He made the point that they were using these terms for one another because of how close they were to each other. While this seems like a simple concept, I hadn’t specifically thought about it before. I realize that in my own life, I’ve had close friends who I considered to be brothers and sisters. I knew that by using these terms the bible was teaching that we should be close, but I didn’t think about the fact that maybe they actually were that close. Do you have friends which you are this close to? Can you imagine being this close to the people in your church? Do you think we are supposed to be this close?
