How do you know when someone truly accepts you as a close friend? Is it when you let them know all your blemishes, quirks, and flaws? There is great value in such a relationship built on honesty, disclosure, and trust; but there is also great responsibility. This communion moves beyond the surface to genuinely love and care for one another, as in family relationships, which aids in praising, worshiping, confessing, and repenting of sins together in prayer to God. Let us be receptive to such loving communion as the family of God.
