Are you a member of the body of Christ? Then, how much do you really love your family?
Let’s listen to the Apostle Paul as he gives 6 different warm words of affection towards his family in Philippi.

Because we’re citizens of heaven and we’re longing for Christ to come back. Therefore, we treat each other different.
