The family of Jesus wanted to see Him, and some listening to Him, notified Him that His family waited for Him,

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).

If you listen to the word of God and do what it tells you to do, you are as His parent or sibling, depending upon your age. Spirit means more to Him than blood. Does it to you?

Questions:

  • What do you think of belonging to the family of Jesus?
