I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verse was given in the context of “Family”.

14. For this cause I bow my knees
unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Ephesians  3:15   Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16. That he would grant you,
according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might
by his Spirit in the inner man;
17. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,
18. May be able to comprehend
with all saints what  is the breadth,
and length,
and depth,
and height;
19. And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
