Building Blocks of the Body

family communication Published on August 29, 2022

A beautiful aspect of scripture is the imagery that Christ presents in describing how we are connected to Him.

He is the vine; we are the branches.

He is the bridegroom; we are the bride.

He is the shepherd; we are the sheep.

We are all beautifully and complementarily unified together in Christ. As a family unit, you make up a part of the body of Christ. When you fulfill your God-given family role and are firmly rooted in your family values, you are successfully contributing to the unity of the body of Christ.

This isn’t to say that there is never miscommunication or conflict within your family. Branches can cease to produce fruit, a bride can argue with her groom, and sheep can mindlessly wander off from the rest of the flock. The body of Christ can be a dysfunctional mess at times, as different parts war against each other and vie for importance.

When you see this discord affect your family, it is easy to become discouraged. Yet there is hope for every situation because we are all unified in Christ. Regardless of the disconnect and conflict within your family, it is important to remember that each member cares about the other.

To truly build and maintain a healthy unity within your family unit, arrange a family meeting to begin to communicate. Find reasons to celebrate joyfully together, discover ways to support and serve each other throughout the week, and be intentional with your time together.
