OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 5)

JESUS AND HIS FAMILY


September 25, 2018
Today’s gospel: Luke 8:19-21


Mary and Jesus’ cousins wanted to see him but could not go near because of the crowd (v.19). When told that they were standing outside waiting to see him (v.20), Jesus said, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” (v.21). That was not a rebuke, was not disrespect, and certainly was not saying that Mary does not act on the word of God.

Jesus is saying that being his true relatives is not about blood relations but is about obedience to God. It is not just carrying the name “Christian” but being worthy of the name. It is the same way with us. Are we authentic Christians? But many do not live out God’s commandments. Do we read, meditate on, study, act on, and live out God’s word in the Bible?

We are indeed children of God.But before we can truly claim to be brothers and sisters of Jesus, we must decide on our basic commitment, for ourselves and for our own families. “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
