Yes I believe they should. 6:10 Therefore as we have opportunity - At whatever time or place, and in whatever manner we can. The opportunity in general is our lifetime; but there are also many particular opportunities. Satan is quickened in doing hurt, by the shortness of the time, Rev 12:12. By the same consideration let us be quickened in doing good. Let us do good - In every possible kind, and in every possible degree. Unto all men - Neighbours or strangers, good or evil, friends or enemies. But especially to them who are of the household of faith. For all believers are but one family. Source: Wesley's Notes Those that are of the household of faith, that is, those who are joined with us in the profession of one self same religion, ought to be preferred before all others, yet in such a way that our generosity extends to all. Source: Geneva Study Bible Galatians 6:10. Translate, "So then, according as (that is, in proportion as) we have season (that is, opportunity), let us work (a distinct Greek verb from that for "do," in Ga 6:9) that which is (in each case) good." As thou art able, and while thou art able, and when thou art able (Ec 9:10). We have now the "season" for sowing, as also there will be hereafter the "due season" (Ga 6:9) for reaping. The whole life is, in one sense, the "seasonable opportunity" to us: and, in a narrower sense, there occur in it more especially convenient seasons. The latter are sometimes lost in looking for still more convenient seasons (Ac 24:25). We shall not always have the opportunity "we have" now. Satan is sharpened to the greater zeal in injuring us, by the shortness of his time (Rev 12:12). Let us be sharpened to the greater zeal in well-doing by the shortness of ours. "them who are of the household": Every right-minded man does well to the members of his own family (1Timothy 5:8); so believers are to do to those of the household of faith, that is, those whom faith has made members of "the household of God" (Ephesians 2:19): "the house of God" (1Timothy 3:15; 1Peter 4:17).

"I stand amazed" The opening lines go like this: "I stand amazed in the presence..........of Jesus the Nazarene. And wonder how He could love me........a sinner, condemned, unclean" I love that hymn. Because I know that I AM CLEAN now!!!! Praise God
Callidora Originally Answered: Christian brothers and sisters can you tell me?
There are a few hymns that have touched my heart, such as "The Love of God" and "What a Friend We Have in Jesus". The most recent one, I would say, is "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" as the song has been speaking to me in the way I live my life. The Bible encourages us to keep "looking unto Jesus, the author and perfector of faith" (Hebrews 12:2) and so I endeavour to do that every day. Almost every morning, I would pray in my heart, "I want to see You, Jesus. I want to see more of Your glory and Your grace. I believe today is the best day of my life so far because You are in me, the hope of glory." And this reminder would help see me through the valley, for whenever I take my eyes off Jesus, I would feel despair. But when I focus on Him again - His words of grace - it doesn't matter how my circumstances look like, for I would only be lost in His presence, and His presence is all I need. ----- O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There's light for a look at the Savior, And life more abundant and free. Chorus: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.

Turn YOur eyes upon Jesus Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace. Through death into life everlasting He passed, and we follow Him there; Over us sin no more hath dominion— For more than conquerors we are! Refrain His Word shall not fail you—He promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell! Refrain I love this hymn cause it is so true the more you concentrate on Jesus the less important the things of this world become.

The song that our choir sings I believe is called, "This Child is Mine". I havent heard it enough to know much how the words go. It's not in the hymnal. This man from a local church wrote it and let me tell you it speaks to your heart and sends chills trough you. If I ever run across it on line I will come back and post it. It talks about Satan being the accsure of us who are saved, and as he stands before Jesus telling all that we done, Jesus then speaks this child is mine. I love singing this song. Sorry its not a hymn, but its needs to be.

Callidora Originally Answered: Is the claim that all humans are brothers and sisters a Christian teaching? Why or why not?
It is NOT a Biblical teaching. Jesus told some religious hypocrites, that he came from His Father, God, but they speak from THEIR father, the devil! When a person repents and puts his trust in the vicarious death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as payment for, and because of, and on behalf of our sins, then God adopts that person into His Forever Family (John 1:1-14), at which time we become brothers and sisters in Christ.

A recent discovery in Britain [exactly where I am not sure] of human like skeletal remains indicates an existance of a people not related to chimps or abes! The concept of "brothers and sisters in the Lord" is Christian. The idea that all humans are brothers and sisters dating back to Eve I think is pushing the story of our first parents a bit too literal. Some theologians have posited the concept that we are all "anonimous Christians" and therefore brothers and sisters in the Lord. Who knows?!

Sheesh...that is about as narrow of a definition that could be imagined! So step sibs can't be a brother or sister???? C'mon start to think outside the box. I have many brothers and sisters in the figurative sense.
