brothers and sisters

Dale Cresap's picture

In some churches the members refer to each other as brother and sister. This reflects a spiritual reality, for the members of one body are also the members of one family. So more important than using these terms as titles is the conduct it calls for. How well did you get along with your brothers and sisters while you were growing up? This may not be something to emulate in your church. My word says it is good and pleasant for brethren to dwell together in unity. Whether you use the terms brother and sister in church or not, you should relate to them also as friends for whom you would lay down your life.
