The Gospels through the Summer, Day 31
What does it mean to be family? Read Mark 3.
As Jesus began his ministry, we see so often Jesus doing amazing and miraculous things in the company of lots of people. However, when we see Jesus’s biological family come on the scene, they are trying to stop him and Jesus asks the question who is my family.
It’s important to understand that when we belong to Christ, we are family. Not because of biology, but because of his blood that covers us all for the forgiveness of our sins. He adopts us into his family and as a result we have a bond with our brothers and sisters in Christ that is stronger than any biological bond that there could be.
What does it mean to be the brother and sister of Jesus Christ? It means that we have been forgiven and covered by the blood of Jesus and adopted into his family and are called children of God.
