Sisters in Christ: Beyond Your Perspective
Perspective 1: When we become Christians, we are given the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us to grow closer to God and to become more like Him. He also helps us to be better people and to build relationships with others. When we share the gospel with others, we are inviting them to become part of our family—the family of God. We should always remember that we are brothers and sisters in Christ, and that we should love and support one another. The term “sister in Christ” is used to describe someone who shares a common faith in God. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ because we are all God’s children. Christ Jesus spoke of God as “my Father” and “our Father,” because we share one divine Parent. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and we are all called to serve Him. As sisters in Christ, we should support each other in our faith journey. We should also pray for each other and encourage one another to follow Jesus Christ. When we unite together as sisters in Christ, we can accomplish great things for the Kingdom of God. Let’s work together to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the world! Bible Verses About our Brothers and Sisters in Christ The Lord Jesus once said, “That you love one another, as I have loved you” (John 15:12). This is God’s commandment and the principle for us to build a normal relationship with our brothers and sisters. So how can we love one another and get along well with our brothers and sisters? The following Bible verses and related articles will show you the way to practice and enter. Read now. John 13:34–35 A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another. John 15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another. 1 Peter 3:8 Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brothers, be pitiful, be courteous: 1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 1 John 3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 1 Peter 1:22 Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently. 1 John 4:12 No man has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. Perspective 2: A brother or sister in Christ is someone you may have heard referred to as a "Christian sister" or a "Christian brother." These two phrases might be loosely translated as "religious companion," but they have more substance. We are the sons and daughters of God because we belong to Christ Jesus. Because we have one heavenly Father, Christ Jesus referred to God as "my Father" and "our Father." We all have a Father in Heaven, and because of that, we are all brothers and sisters. Christ Jesus spoke of God as “my Father” and “our Father,” because we share one divine Parent. This means that we are all related, no matter what our race or ethnicity may be. We are also brothers and sisters in Christ, because we have all accepted Him as our Savior. To be "in Christ" implies the pleasure of belonging to God as a son, sentiments that Christ Jesus constantly experienced and expressed in his interactions with people. The fact that we can love friends and foes alike reflects his message: that we are children of the God of Love, who may love everyone because we are. As the son of God, the Savior was more aware than any other person of the link between God and man as creator and creation, also known as Divine Mind and divine concept. Some reference verses: “Immortals, or God’s children in divine Science, are one harmonious family; but mortals, or the ‘children of men’ in material sense, are discordant and ofttimes false brethren” (“Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” p. 444). “By one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.... Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (I Corinthians 12:13, 27). Our actual selfhood as God's manifestation is found in the eternalfirst Christian. We are reborn into Christ through continuous spiritual regeneration, which exposes us to greater and more pure versions of our true selves.
