Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd. And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You.” But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear The Word of God and do it.” Luke 8:19-21
When Jesus’ mother and brothers 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.
We are one with Christ, Amen. Co-heirs with Christ of The Kingdom of Heaven, Amen.
And we pray:
Lord Jesus, we are all a part of the family of God who have heard the Word of God in the Gospel and believed it. We thank You for adopting us into Your 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. Amen.
