19 Then his mother and his brothers came to him, but they could not reach him because of the crowd. 20 And he was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.” 21 But he said to them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”
Jesus is in the midst of ministry when his mother & brothers come to see him. He’s told “your mum’s here”.
“Your mum’s here” always gets a response from us & Jesus is no different. Jesus redefines who his mother & brothers are saying that even they needed to change in their relationship with Him. For any of us to be truly related to Jesus we need to not only hear what he says but we also need to “do it”.
Jesus help me to be someone who is truly related to you, and not to hesitate to do or practice what you teach.
