When God created humans, He designed us to live in families. The Bible reveals that family relationships are important to God. The church, the universal body of believers, is called the family of God. When we receive God's Spirit at salvation, we are adopted into his family. These Bible verses about family will help you focus on the various relational aspects of a godly family unit.
