And Jesus answered and said unto them, My mother and My sistersand brothers are these who hear The Word of God, and do it.
Be you not hearers only, but define yourself by demonstrating actions! Actions speak louder than words.
So many times sayings are heard; do we apply them and live them?
When Jesus’ mother and family stood outside of the building where He taught, wishing to apprehend Him because they thought He was losing His mind; He would not go out to meet them then. But He answered that His true family were those who heard God’s Word and kept it.
Lord Jesus, we are all a part of The Family of God who have heard the Word of God in the Gospel and believe it. We thank You for adopting us into The family, unworthy though we were. We know that You will never oust anyone from Your family, even when we sin. But help us to walk in obedience to Your Word. Help us to “walk worthy” of the calling with which you have called us, we pray in Your name, Amen.
