Dear Son, Dear Brother
A promise is a debt, so this is me paying the debt of love.
Dear son, dear brother, I thank God for you. Unlike our dear sisters, wife, wife to be, future wife and dear mothers you both have a different and higher kind of direct model to follow: Jesus Christ – who is both fully man and fully God.
A lot has been written about Him in the Gospel, but there is a portion of scripture that summarizes Him in a very personal way that I think would serve for our consideration this morning.
