You are Invited

Jesus is told His family is outside but they can’t get near to Him because of the crowd. He responds:

My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice. Luke 8:20

Today you are invited to consider what may be seen as harsh words from Jesus about His family. How do you feel about them – as a member of Jesus’ actual family? And as a member of His family who follow and obey Him? How would you feel if a family member puts others before you? How do you feel if family members put you first? How does the fact that Jesus calls you a member of His family when you follow and obey Him? How do your answers to these questions impact your relationships – with your family, with other Christ-followers, and with Jesus Himself? What is Jesus saying to you today?

May God bless you as you hear and follow Him today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
