He acknowledges his shared identity with them, recognizing them as kin who share in the good news preached by Jesus. It might be helpful for us during this Advent season to acknowledge our shared identity with our brothers and sisters in Christ. The royal road of our lives onto which the King will enter stretches not only into the past and future, it spans wide in the present as well. Part of our Advent preparation might be smoothing the rough places between ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ. Do they have reason to thank God upon every remembrance of you?

The strong arms of a friend so kind,
To help me onward with my load.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The only way to have a friend is to be one.
