Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. 32 A crowd as sitting around Him and they told Him, ”Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you. ” Who are my mother and brothers? ” Jesus Asked. Then He looked at those seated in a circle around Him and said, ”Here are my mother and my brothers! 33 Whoever does God’s will is my brother, sister and mother. – Mark 3:31 – 34
Everyone belongs to a group of related blood(that’s by birth) or by adoption-family. As believers, we belong to a unique family that goes beyond blood relation,boundaries etc. By faith in Christ Jesus, we were reborn into the family of Christ.
Understanding the scriptures well, we know that the family we join in Christ(Spiritual) is a more loving and lasting family than the families we have in this world(physical). As believers in Christ, we are one big family regardless of our earthly families, tribes, languages, colour etc. We become dissociated when we give up our faith, go contrary to the teachings of our father(God).
Christ Jesus considers us as part of his family because we choose to follow him, talk to him daily in prayer, listen to him by reading the Holy Bible and obeying Him. Stay connected. We shall live together in God’s eternity. Ephesians 2:19 – Consequently, you are no more foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.
