There are varying aspects that characterize a family. Some may be funny all of the time and others may be more strict and serious. However, most families have a mutual respect, love, and desire to honor one another embedded within it. Much like our families at home, the church is also described as a family. Except within this family, the bond that holds us together is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through this Gospel bond, where we respect, love, and honor everyone who gets adopted into the family of Christ.
