There are certain matters which must be discussed. There is the universal Christian family, which includes all authentic Christians. There is the local Christian family, which is a family in a specific country. And there is the regional family which is the Christian family who is nearby. Now, we have the Nuclear family, who is our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and the like. Then, we have the extended family, which could include our spiritual family our anyone to whom we feel close. Now, the extended family and universal family respresents the whole kingdom of God. We are the body of Christ. So, how do I join?. The only way to get in is by submitting to the Lord, Himself. He will bring the church to you. God will place you in the church.
