PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Mark 3:31-35
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” (Mark 3:35)
Jesus loves all people, but he loves in a special way those who obey God’s will.
But who actually does this… we all fail to fulfill God’s will for our lives.
But Jesus is announcing good news, that by grace all people can be welcome.
God’s will is that those who repent, trust Jesus, and follow Him, will be accepted.
Look at the mixed bag of people with Jesus, what do they have in common?
They have all responded with humility and hope in Jesus.
And He trains them to help Him spread God’s grace around the world.
This is God’s will, that we admit our failure, trust His mercy, and help Jesus.
Those who do this have a special place in Jesus’ heart… but why?
Because this is His missionary family who will bless the rest of the world.
Those who know God’s grace will love all people and help them back to God.
As a Jesus follower, I am a member of Jesus’ family by grace!
As a Jesus follower, my calling is to obey God’s will and share His grace with others!
This is Jesus’ mission, and all who join Him have a special place in His heart.
Lord, it’s not problem for me to admit my sinful heart and my need for mercy. Thank You for wanting me to be a part of Your missionary family, that together we can bless our creation family.
