When a couple gets married, they become a part of each other’s families and both families should carry the same weight of influence in the couple’s relationship. When we accepted Christ, we became His “Bride” (Revelation 19:7). His Father is now our Father. His family is now our family. The covenants God made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are now shared with us as members of the family. When we see God’s promises fulfilled to Israel, they will be fulfilled to us as well. Let us continue to pray for His family even as we pray for our own.
