Blood relationship had been altered at the cross of the Savior.
We used to proceed in our relations with transactional intent.
I will give you what you need if your purchase is registered. Thus, human interactions are merely business deals pretending kindred depth.
Christ's mission introduced a new kind of affinity. Instead of a landlord, we were granted access to our Father. Instead of a tyrant, we were twined to our Redeemer.
Instead of an enterprise, we were grafted into His family.
We are left in awe with the resplendent reality that we are now related by the Blood of the Lamb.
