Day Twenty-Four
Saturday July 24th, 2010

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”
-Mark 6:4
But He answered them saying, “Who are My mothers and My brothers?” And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and My mother.”
-Mark 3:33-35
So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake’s and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundred fold now in this time - houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions - and in the age to come, eternal life.”
-Mark 10:29-30

Luke 4:21. (Look this one up yourself.)

When the waves of contention and drama sweep through my own family and extended family, I long for Gal 3:26 to manifest itself...for the love of Jesus to envelope us all and hold us close.
I often find myself closer to my Christian brothers than my blood ones--I also find myself desiring to be with my Christian brothers more than my own. I wish my family would/could see the Truth. Come Lord Jesus, come. Help us all past our hangups and unify us together in our worship of You.
