My Latest article on Bible Basics
The Church. The Saints. A Royal Priesthood. The Body of Christ. A Holy Nation. The Bride of Christ. His Own Special People. The Sheep of His Hand. Christians as a group are called by many names in Scripture, and each is rich with meaning and worthy of contemplation and study. My favorite names, though, are the ones describing us as part of God’s family.
From my heart to yours
Thinking a lot about the Body of Christ, all my brothers and sisters. I yearn to meet you all and get to know you. Even if we never get that chance planet-side, we’ll surely have the time to do it wandering the golden streets together.
Serving our sweet Savior,
LeeAnn Bonds, Bible Basics Editor
Read my new blog, Katalambano!. (Katalambano is a Greek word meaning “to lay hold of so as to make one’s own, to take into one’s self, to lay hold of with the mind, to understand, perceive, learn, comprehend.”) Not too much on there yet, but I’m working on it.
