74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
-Kinship, a word that defines a connection between people based on characteristics or origins. A very common type of kinship is a blood relationship. It is often proven that those who face life-threatening circumstances such as police officers or soldiers also develop a strong kinship with one another. The Bible here presents another type of kinship that is arguably the strongest of all. They that fear the Lord should automatically be glad to see another believer because the Lord connects us. Just as we are made to be sons and daughters of God, so it must follow that we are made brothers and sisters to each other. Not just a brother or sister to those you see in church weekly, but to everyone who has ever hoped in God’s Word throughout all time.
