Webster defines a family…
A) naturally, as the basic unit in society, traditionally consisting of parents and their children.
B) or a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head.
C) or a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation.
Our spiritual family can therefore be defined as “a group of individuals, united by faith in Jesus, and living under the headship of Christ or Lord.”
God has given us the privilege of being born again and we are now all members of God's family.

Even mature Christians can find themselves at times inattentive to the Bible.
But when we fail to remain close to God and His Word, we soon find ourselves disconnected from Him, His presence, and His blessings.
