I love my spiritual family. That’s pretty much all I wanted to say. I am truly privileged to know some of the best people in the world, in my opinion. I really don’t know why God went out of His way to bless me with the best brothers and sisters a man could ever ask for. If you guys (and women) are reading this, I just want to thank you for sticking by me, encouraging me, leading me by the Word and rebuking me when I needed it.
If any others who I don’t know are out there reading this post, I just want to exhort you: find an amazing church family. Find some good, loving people with whom you enjoy serving God. Get plugged in; serve them. Grow with them. There really is nothing else like it in the world. We are the body of Christ. We are unified by the God of the universe. That’s amazing; it really is.

“Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.” -Hebrews 2:11
