Christian Kinship And Variety

"God hath made of one blood all the families of the earth." God hath also made of the one blood of His Son a redeemed family from all the nations of the earth. The same mineral spices are found in the tropics as in our own country, yet the vegetable forms are entirely different, their relationship to the sun make all the difference. Just as the same Spirit dwells in all the children of God, yet the outward fruits and effects are very varied. Our personal and abiding relationship to Christ as the Son of righteousness determines the character of our fruitfulness.
