Family

Matthew 12:46-50

Jesus' earthly family interrupts His dialogue with the Pharisees.  The questions that Jesus asked in verse 48 are not degrading His earthly family.  He asked the Apostle John to take care of His mother after He died and ascended into Heaven.  One of the Commandments is to honor our parents.  Jesus is teaching that spiritual relationships will take primary place over earthly relationships.  The Spiritual is always greater than the earthly.  But again this doesn't mean we should neglect the earthly, but give the earthly a spiritual dimension.  How does one join the spiritual family?  You do the will of the Heavenly Father.  What is the will of the Heavenly Father?  It is to believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior.  Have you confessed Jesus as your Savior?  If you are a Christian, take some time to reflect on the work of the Holy Spirit in you.
